Callback calls 127.0.1.1 instead of real client IP  RSS feed

Hi all, I'd like to ask a question.. it may sound easy but I'm stuck with it.
I have successfully implemented a callback architecture in my program, but it works only if the server and client programs are on the same machine. If I load the client on another machine the client can call any rmi method on the server, but when it's time to use a callback method the server tries to connect to 127.0.1.1.
Should I set java.hostname property also on the client? I don't think so, but never say never..

simplified versions of the sources:



Log of the server console:

Scripts I use to run the server and the clients:
client:
java -Djava.security.policy=security.policy -jar Client.jar

server:
java -Djava.security.policy=security.policy -Djava.rmi.server.hostname=192.168.1.254 -Djava.rmi.server.codebase=file:/home/Server/Client.jar -jar Server.jar

Can somebody figure out what's wrong in my code?
Thanks in advance, Andrea.

I should have set the hostname property also on the client...
I thought the UnicastRemoteObject.exportObject told the server everything it needed to call the clients.
If I have a client which runs on dhcp how should I set this property?
Now I'm in a LAN setting, so I simply put the local IP address of my client machine. Should I put the public IP address?

Normally a client also has a name on the network you could use that in the property (e.g. client.local). I hope this helps.

1) host = "192.168...."
or
2) hostName = InetAddress.getByName(host).getHostAddress();

1) System.setProperty("java.rmi.server.hostname", host);
or
2) System.setProperty("java.rmi.server.hostname", hostName);
