"JBossAS now binds its services to localhost ( *by default*, instead of binding to all available interfaces ( This was primarily done for security reasons because of concerns of users going to production without having secured their servers properly. To enable remote access by binding JBoss services to a particular interface, simply run jboss with the -b option. To bind to all available interfaces and re-enable the legacy behaviour use -b In any case, be aware you still need to secure you server properly." 

This is a very common "gotcha" - I've seen it several times. I actually asked the AS team to be more explicit about this in the AS documentation, since I think hiding this info away in readme.html is not clear enough.

Hopefully they will be including this in the doco for future releases.
