My client uses a dial-up networking connection to my server.
The client makes several RMI calls to fetch login information.
Now my problem is this:
If the dial-up connection hangs up for some reason during RMI calls, a new dial-up and client start do nothing. It seems like the previous RMI call is still alive (even if the applet was killed) and blocking a socket. The line is ok, no problem there, but the login does not proceed.
Can the RMI connections be "cleaned"? Does the cleaning have to take place on the client (obviously, since it does not work) and in the server?
