    Default JMX Basic trouble

    I cant seem to enable authentication on my jmx server...

    I need to be able to connect to an rmi server through a firewall, hence I found myself doing this:

    Monitoring and Management Using JMX Technology - Java SE Monitoring and Management Guide (Example 2-5)

    The only changes I made are the port numbers and file names.

    Just running that code, I can't get authentication to work. I can connect to my jmx agent with no credentials or just simply bad credentials. I'm not passing anything to the jvm when I start up the RMI server, so authentication _should_ be on!

    Playing around with the code a bit, I was able to verify that the remote.access file is indeed being read: If I invalidate the path, the server fails to start:

    env.put("jmx.remote.x.password.file", "c:/jmxremote.password");

    >>> Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: c:\jmxremote.access (The system cannot find the file specified)

    However, if I do something similar to the password file, everything starts up perfectly fine:

    env.put("jmx.remote.x.password.file", "c:/jmxremote.password");

    >>> Starts fine

    Any idea why I can't seem to get authentication working??

    Here's my code... it shouldn't run but does.
