Subject Another confused person trying to get jconsole to monitor tomcat.
Date Wed, 20 Aug 2008 23:56:34 GMT
I've been through the docs.  I've been through Google.  I can't seem
to figure this out.

Server: Tomcat 6.0.18, JDK: 1.6.0_07, Redhat Server 5.2
Client: jconsole from JDK 1.6.0_07 on Windows XP

I've got all of these in $CATALINA_OPTS and they do show up in
the java command line when I run ps:

The Redhat server is running iptables and disallows most things that
aren't 80/443.  Any other ports that are needed are generally opened
up only to specific IP's.

I've opened up the JMX port specified above on the Linux firewall:

iptables -A INPUT -s myClientsIp -p tcp -m tcp --dport 12345 -j ACCEPT

I run jconsole:


It can't make the connection.  I've got a feeling it's something to do with
the firewall.  I've seen some stuff that suggests that there's another
unspecified port opened up but it didn't really make sense to me.

Note that the server and the client are at different facilities connected
over the internet which is why I eventually want to get it going with
authentication and SSL but I can't even get this simple insecure
version of the connection to work.
