Sun's reggie lookup service requires an HTTP server. However, my company does not allow access to HTTP servers with specified port numbers. Does this mean that I cannot use reggie, and hence Jini? Is there any way around this?
I see that there is public lookup service running on http://www.jini.canberra.edu.au
. Can (How do) I use this lookup service without specifying a port number?
Is it true that the purpose of having the HTTP server is that clients can download some class files from the server? If so, will an FTP server work? or just a simple customized server?
