[jboss-user] [Installation, Configuration & DEPLOYMENT] - RMI behind a firewall

Hello all.

I am having problems getting RMI to run with an activated windows xp firewall.

I am working with jboss 4.2.2

I partially followed the 'UsingJBossBehindAFirewall' guide and have opened up the ports as listed and it partially works, at least my clients can connect to the 1098 port.

But when the other port is negotiated it cannot connect to those.
As soon as I enable the firewall I can see, via netstat, the open ports on the server side and the attempts from the client to connect there, but they are not working.

I'm not the network specialist but is it normal that the RMI Port (1098) opens a route to itself? i.e. from [server-ip]:1421 to [server-ip]:1098

What am I missing?
