This seems to be a pretty big issue for Jboss, as in, I have searched the Internet for the last couple of weeks and found multiple people with this problem.
I am not very knowledgeable when it come to Servers, hosting and the such but when I undertook this project I never thought I would spend this long at this point in the project.
This is a simple jsf project I have deployed.
I have Jboss running on an Amazon instance of windows server 2007.
I am able to access it via local host:8080/name/index.jsf
This produced my webpage as expected.
However If I try to access it externally from <ip adress>:8080/name/index.jsf
I get noting.
I am able to access other content through my port 80 such as text files and other web pages
And it works as expected.
So I tried activating standalone.bat -b 0.0.0.0
And still got noting.
Can anyone help me solve this issue, what am I missing.
Hmm, looks like you need to ask an Amazon expert. From what you posted, there wouldn't be any issues if you were running on a physical box or even a VM in a physical box that you have access to. I have no problems running JBoss AS in a VirtualBox VM running Win 2008 R2 on my desktop, or in a VMWare VM in my employer's datacenter.
