Firewall configuration

This might be somewhat of a weird question but I hope someone can still help me with it. I am trying to get JBoss installed and running on my new notebook (running WinXP). The first time I tried to get it running it hung. Then I thought this might be caused by my Norton firewall software. JBoss ran with no problems as soon as I disabled it. To allow JBoss to run with the firewall up, I would need to provide it with an executable. Would that be java.exe?

Depends how you are running it. It could be java.exe or javaw.exe. Check your process explorer to see which it is.
