      Description

      The default policy file installed has this stanza:
      :
      permission java.net.SocketPermission "${derby.drda.host}:*", "accept";
      :

      Normally, specifying -h 0.0.0.0 to NetworkServerControl lets clients connect
      from any host, but with the default policy file installed
      connecting fails even from localhost.

      I think this is because SocketPermission only recognizes "*" as a catch-all.
