I had the same issue on Ubuntu.

The reason seems to be the default network configuration in Ubuntu:
jonathan@calisto:~$ cat /etc/hosts    localhost    calisto

Notice the second line.

Now, in com.sun.jini.phoenix.LocalAccess, a check is being done on whether
the client is a local host:
InetAddress addr = host.getClientHost();
    Boolean ok = (Boolean) cache.get(addr);
    if (ok == null) {
        try {
        ok = Boolean.valueOf(NetworkInterface.getByInetAddress(
                    addr) != null);
        } catch (IOException e) {
        ok = Boolean.FALSE;
        cache.put(addr, ok);
    if (!ok.booleanValue()) {
        throw new AccessControlException("origin is non-local host");

However, this check does not work for the above configuration in Ubuntu
(hostname associated with a loopback address, but not with
The check only looks at physical network interfaces to determine whether the
client is a local host.

A fix could be to add an extra check on loopback addresses (which I tested
and seems to work in my case):
   ok = Boolean.valueOf(NetworkInterface.getByInetAddress(
                    addr) != null || addr.isLoopbackAddress());

Or to change /etc/hosts (which I've also tested): localhost calisto
