All,
Say I have EJBs behind my company's firewall. I have VPN access to connect to the company network. Can I access the EJBs behind firewall if the firewall disables RMI-IIOP access?
Thanks,
Frank

You can get around the firewall with a product that enables IIOP tunneling. Usually this means sneaking your IIOP traffic through the HTTP service port. Then, on the server side, you have something in your web server or application server that decodes the IIOP stuff and processes it.
Do a google search on "IIOP tunneling" -- you'll come up with several points of reference.

Or you can simply write a servlet proxy.
