- Sad no one could help me solve this issue, but it is fixed now. But for 
everyone else here is the link for more details on the RMI issue with 
connection refused.

I had a bad /etc/hosts file on Linux. The IP Address on this box was wrong.

vi /etc/hosts

check the IP Address and the host name and make sure it matches with the IP 
address when running the command ifconfig -a

check  /etc/sysconfig/network (this is used mostly for emails etc. but just 

check file /proc/sys/kernel/hostname
(please go to the section : [2.6. Network Configuration] for more detailed 

Hope this helps ;)
