I am Using the Spidermonkey library and it works when on the same computer. I can start the server and client and they work when on the same box.
I am now trying to connect a client box to the server and it just hangs and then Timesout (java.net.connection).
NOTE: both boxes are on my home network
NOTE: On the client box I can ping the server from a command prompt and it connects
NOTE: I setup a Tomcat server on the server box and my client can connect to that.
NOTE: I am using VM args to fill in address : ports -Dserver.address=“192.168.0.108” -Dserver.port=“5110” and a sout spits the values out correctly when the client starts so I think it is has the right server ip and port.
NOTE: I believe I am only using TCP
Question: Do I need to set a windows firewall rule. If so which way and which box?
I tried setting Inbound TCP on the Client for port 5110 and outbound TCP on the server… but still no luck
Thanks for any help.
