I started an application with ejb, a simple example extract from
I have JBoss 4.2.2 installed and deployed the ejb with success, the client application was able to access the declared method, but i did all in local machine.

i would like to access the ejb from another pc in the same network, so i changed 'localhost' to <Internal_IP> in the client test, initialized jboss with '-b' option and tried but no success and no
error, the application hangs forever.The lookup was fine, but when i call the method it never get called and never returns.

Here is my code:
The output is:
before lookup
after lookup: jboss.j2ee:jar=HelloWorldService.jar,name=EjbHelloWorldBean,service=EJB3

I have disabled the antivirus and firewall to certify that nothing was bloking...

After this i started jboss with '-b <INTERNAL_IP>' and then it worked but i cant't access my projects in the server machine with localhost like i did before. I have to put the <INTERNAL_IP>,i would like to avoid this behavior
if it's possible.

can anybody help me, please? i'm starting with ejb and i don't know what else to make.

Thank you very much and sorry for my english!

Fabiano, if you are starting with EJBs then I would recommend you use JBoss AS7 instead of 4.2.2 (which is very old). JBoss AS7 also has quickstart examples which include EJB examples too

Jaikiran, thanks for your response!

In our company we use JBoss 4.2.2 for a long time and we are studying an update of this version, but it still going to take some time. For now i have to make this work test and a new functionally(ejb) in old version of jboss, that's why i can't base my work in jboss7, but thanks for the recommendation.

Any idea about the situation described above?
