All,
     It appears that the issue with OpenEJB not retaining the port number was due to a naming issue and not a problem withing OpenEJB so I do not think this issue is related to GERONIMO-1151.  Sorry about that.

Take care,

Jeremy

Vasily,
     I am currently looking into how well OpenEJB is obeying the config.xml for setting its properties.  I think your issue could be a side-effect of GERONIMO-1151 located here:

http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-1151

As soon as I have this fixed, which has to be tonight, I'll be able to tell you for sure if this is the case.

Take care,

Jeremy

Thank you very much for your answer!

Well, I tried correcting j2ee-server-plan.xml and config.xml, and I also
tried to provide the proper value for allowHosts in GUI installer - it
all didn't help.

What really helped is correcting modules/assembly/maven.xml file and
specifying the IP address of the client in line 247 (specifying host
name or 255.255.255.255 mask also didn't help):

   <j:set var="PlanClientAddresses"
value="<MY_CLIENT_HOST_IP_ADDRESS>"/>

and then rebuilding Geronimo.

However, it didn't helped much.
I made additional investigation for the problem location and here's what
I've found:

The problem occurs in file org/openejb/client/Client.java:
http://cvs.codehaus.org/viewrep/openejb/openejb/modules/core/src/java/or
g/openejb/client/Client.java?r=1.5

Previously the problem occured at line 171 (see code, the exceptions are
wrapped badly there):

javax.naming.AuthenticationException: Cannot deternmine server protocol
version: Received null/0.0; nested exception is:
        java.io.IOException: Unable to read protocol version.  Reached
the end of the stream.
        at
org.openejb.client.JNDIContext.authenticate(JNDIContext.java:196)
        at
org.openejb.client.JNDIContext.getInitialContext(JNDIContext.java:181)
        at javax.naming.spi.NamingManager.getInitialContext (Unknown
Source)
        at javax.naming.InitialContext.getDefaultInitCtx(Unknown Source)
        at javax.naming.InitialContext.init(Unknown Source)
        at javax.naming.InitialContext.<init>(Unknown Source)

And after the fix to maven.xml and rebuilding Geronimo another error
occurs a bit later, at line 192:

javax.naming.AuthenticationException: Cannot read the response from the
server (OEJP/2.0) : null; nested exception is:
        java.io.EOFException
        at
org.openejb.client.JNDIContext.authenticate(JNDIContext.java:196)
        at
org.openejb.client.JNDIContext.getInitialContext(JNDIContext.java:181)
        at javax.naming.spi.NamingManager.getInitialContext (Unknown
Source)
        at javax.naming.InitialContext.getDefaultInitCtx(Unknown Source)
        at javax.naming.InitialContext.init(Unknown Source)
        at javax.naming.InitialContext.<init>(Unknown Source)

Previous problem was clearly a configuration issue, that was at last
resolved, but I have completely no idea on what to do with this new
problem. :(

Can it be that Geronimo/OpenEJB does not accept remote JNDI connections
at all??

Hi Vasily,

In the j2ee-server-plan.xml file it configures the IP addresses that the

(OpenEJB) EJB daemon will accept connections from in the "allowHosts"
attribute.  For example:

    <!-- EJB Protocol -->
    <gbean gbeanName="geronimo:type=NetworkService,name=EJB"
class="org.activeio.xnet.StandardServiceStackGBean">
        <attribute name="name">EJB</attribute>
        <attribute name="port">${PlanOpenEJBPort}</attribute>
        <attribute name="host">${PlanServerHostname}</attribute>
        <attribute name="allowHosts">${PlanClientAddresses}</attribute>
        <attribute
name="logOnSuccess">HOST,NAME,THREADID,USERID</attribute>
        <attribute name="logOnFailure">HOST,NAME</attribute>
        <reference
name="Executor"><name>DefaultThreadPool</name></reference>
        <reference
name="Server"><gbean-name>openejb:type=Server,name=EJB</gbean-name></ref
erence>
    </gbean>

The In the geronimo\var\config.xml file (where you can specify attribute

values that can override the values in the deployed plan) you should see

the following section:

    <configuration name="org/apache/geronimo/Server">
        <gbean name="openejb:type=NetworkService,name=EJB">
            <attribute name="host">0.0.0.0</attribute>
            <attribute name="port">4201</attribute>
        </gbean>
    </configuration>

In theory, you should be able to edit the config.xml file and specify
the allowable remote host by doing something like:

    <configuration name="org/apache/geronimo/Server">
        <gbean name="openejb:type=NetworkService,name=EJB">
            <attribute name="host">0.0.0.0</attribute>
            <attribute name="port">4201</attribute>
            <attribute name="allowHosts">myhostname</attribute>
        </gbean>
    </configuration>

*** But I have a bug currently open where the port number in the
config.xml file as shown in the example above is not actually used and I

have a feeling the same problem will happen for allowHosts (see
http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-1151 ).  I haven't had a
chance to debug this yet.  Let me know what happens.

I think most of the testing so far has been done on the localhost with
the default port.

Regards,

John
