Network Error (tcp_error) to call AXIS web service. faultString: (503)Service Unavailable

I am using axis to call a web service. when I run it on local machine (local jboss server) it works fine.

But after deploying it on development server I see service unavailable error code 503. It gets timed out. I am able to telnet (using wsdl port ) from development server to the server where the web service is deployed.
somewhere I also studied that because of having a lot of response data the webservice call gets timed out and you get service not found.
I tried to attach the .txt , .log file but was unable to attach. I am really concerned about it; as it's running well on local server but not on development server.
Please suggest me the solution.

"A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out"

Talk to your network people. If you're going a VPN, that may also cause serious delays.

I asked network guys they are saying things are ok. We are able to telnet and pong the webservice server on the same port.

Is there any way such that we could increase the timed out interval in axis webservice connection?

After a lot of Analysis we got that the issue was due to the difference in JVMs of Jboss server and Web service Jboss server. Both were at different location.

The issue could be resolved in two ways-->>

1. Remove proxy setting present in jboss startup config file


2. Add webservice server to non proxy hosts list for Jboss startup config file

I am happy it got resolved :-) Cheers.....!!!
