Hello
I am doing a RMI Application where the server is behind a firewall. some clients are inside the firewall and some are outside. in order zu get the clients to work though the firewall my networkadministrator can open the ports i need. my problem is that i have to start the java application on serverside with the option "java -Djava.rmi.server.hostname=....." now the clients inside the firewall do not run anymore, but those outside the firewall run fine. any idea how i can fix this problem

thanks for help

perhaps your local clients have different DNS that is giving them the wrong IP address for that hostname?
