I just spent a good 10 hours over the past couple days figuring this out- though Samba & my Windows network know ThinkPad (running RH Linux 7.3) is 192.168.1.2... rmiregistry broadcasts what it finds in /etc/hosts, which in my case was:
which was baffling, since I darn well wasn't trying to connect to localhost!!! And furthermore, I'd put code into my client verifying that I had permission to connect to "ThinkPad/192.168.1.2"!
Now I can serve from either Linux or Windows

You mean it's not??? Try running a webserver on Windows XP for a couple months (i.e., until the worm of some developing Code Red moth has eaten its brains out to the point of syphilitic dementia).
