RMI Internal-External Addresses

2607782Feb 7 2014

Hello to all,

I have the following issue. I am trying to run a very simple Hello World example using the RMI protocol. I want to use theĀ  VM(Virtual Machine) i have bootstrapped at Azure Cloud as the server and an external host as a client. VM of Azure uses internal IP at it's NIC (ethernet interface).

The problem that i have here is that the client NEVER gets the response of the server(VM) as i get i timeout over 5 minutes..

But when i give opposite roles having as the client the VM and as the server the external machine everything is fine..

I am suspecting that it is a network issue as the RMI binds to the internal IP, if i could bind it to a ethernet with a public IP everything would be ok..!

Any suggestions/solutions?
