Subject Re: Connecting to a remote repository
Date Wed, 12 Mar 2014 02:47:39 GMT
I found the solution to my problem. The bootstrap.properties file that 
is used to configure among other things the location of the repository 
also can specify the rmi.host.

If there is a rmi.host entry in this configuration it is used. On the 
other hand if it is not present the binding will be to all interfaces.
