      Description

      When a remote client accesses OpenEJB (and Geronimo) and uses hostname, e.g. localhost not IP address the following exception is thrown:

      WARNING: Cannot access server(s): null:-1 Exception:
      java.io.IOException: Cannot access server: null:-1 due to an unkown exception in the OpenEJB client: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException : port out of range:-1

      at javax.naming.InitialContext.lookup(InitialContext.java:351)
      at remote.MEJBClient.main(MEJBClient.java:20)

      The properties in question are:

      props.put(InitialContext.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "org.apache.openejb.client.RemoteInitialContextFactory");
      props.put(InitialContext.PROVIDER_URL, "localhost:4201");

      Change localhost to 127.0.0.1 and it'll work fine.
