I got bitten by this recently. I am working on a LifecycleListener (that
can be configured in server.xml) that fixes both ports that are used by
jconsole. This makes it much easier to configure firewalls, tunnel through
PuTTY etc.

If I get it finished in time, it will be in 6.0.19+. If not, a later
version. Keep an eye on the change log and/or the dev list.
