RapidAnalytics behind a firewall
I just installed the RapidAnalytics bundle (including JBoss application server) on a machine running Windows 2008 Server (external provider). Everything works fine if I access the server via remote desktop and use things locally. Now I wanted to connect RapidMiner on my local machine to the new server, but I can't establish a connection. First I tried to connect a remote repository from RapidMiner, then I tried to open the web interface (using the server's ip address including the port number (http://x.x.x.x:8080). After a while I received a timeout. So I opened port 8080 on the firewall (Windows firewall) without any results. After some testing I totally disabled the server's firewall for a short moment. But neither RapidMiner nor the web interface allowed connections after that. Instead of a timeout I receive a immediate "connection refused" with the firewall disabled. Since I am not famliar with JBoss and application servers in general, I have no clue where to look for the source of this problem. Maybe the access is restricted to a local network!?
I checked the note on page 9/11 of the RapidAnalytics manual, and found this line for my server:
<soap:address location="http://127.0.0.1:8080/RAWS/RepositoryService"/>The manual states "Check whether the host name is actually a host name under which the host is known in the local network." which seems not to be true. I would really appreciate any hints, since I am really looking forward to use the server and to enjoy its advantages.
