JBOSS Ports used on Redhat Linux (firewall problems)

Posted on 2004-08-24

I am running JBOSS 3.2.4 on Redhat Advanced Server 2.1.
If I disable the firewall completely, I can connect to my EJB's
no problem, however I need to (obvoiusly) have tighter security
than that.

On the server, I have tried allowing ports 80, 1099, 4444, 8009 but I get this error (from the client)

javax.naming.CommunicationException [Root exception is java.rmi.ConnectIOException:  nested exception is: Connection reset by peer: connect]
      at org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContext.lookup(

Does any-one know what extra ports I have to allow to
successfully run JBOSS securely?
