I have been trying out a RMI chat client and server which I got from a site, and I plan to adjust it a bit. The site was WebMonkey
I was wondering if I would be able to run a server from my computer, on which I have a dial-up connection, and run the client from a friend's house by finding out my IP address and getting my friend to type it in to his computer, so the client connects to it (or something like that). I tried that and I got an exception that said:
java.rmi.ConnectException: Connection refused to host: [host62-7-118-194.btinternet.com:1099]; nested exception is:
java.net.ConnectException: OpenTransport error -3260; connection refused
This seems to mean that my ISP won't let me do this. Is there another way? I have been able to use ServerSockets and Sockets without any problems.
