The RMI server would be running in the same local networks as the clients (but could be different machines)

I just wish to make sure no outsider can call the remote methods on the server.

Is setting up a firewall to block access to port 1099 (port for registry) from the outside sufficient?

Or any other suggestions that involve very simple changes/configurations?

Please help! Many thanks in advance!
