I am having trouble with a Java RMI system that I am building. I keep getting an UnknownHostException when I try to connect. For host names, I've tried my IPv4 address, IPv6 address, "localhost", some other things, and more. I also tried typing in random words to see if there was a difference. There wasn't; I got exactly the same error. Here's some code:
The main client-side class:
The Client Network IO Class:
The Server-Side Network IO Class:
The Remote Interface:
The Remote Implementation:
The error message (EvansGame is the name of my computer, but the error is the same no matter what I type. I could type "foo bar" and nothing would change):
The WebConstants Class (Accessed by both Client and Server):
I don't have much knowledge of networking or RMI, so I really don't understand why this is happening.
What IP address did you use to start the RMI server? localhost or 127.0.0.1 or something else. It should work for 127.0.0.1 if client and server are on same computer. The other 2 may need to put entry in HOSTS file.
