At a guess (since you don't show the server code), I imagine the server is bound to IP address 127.0.0.1 - the loopback interface - and therefore doesn't accept connections on any other interface. This is easy to verify: telnet 127.0.0.1 6438 telnet 10.8.8.41 6438 Do you get a successful connection in the first case, but "connection refused" in the second case? If so, all you need to do is configure your server to bind to address 0.0.0.0. This means "all interfaces on the system" HTH, Brian.

Reliable Messaging uses DRb::DRbServer to expose the QueueManager. 2007/7/12, Brian Candler <B.Candler@pobox.com>: > > My local IP address is 10.8.8.41.

ACL (access control list) passes to DRbServer by reliable-msg allows "localhost" only and deny others. So you can access via loopback address. Also DRb listen address is coded as "localhost". These issue is reported here http://www.ruby-doc.org/stdlib/libdoc/drb/rdoc/index.html . Under normal conditions, you can set ACL by a configuration file, e.g. queues.cfg. But there is a bug in current gem release (1.1.0), so configurations of drb is not reflected. It was fixed in CVS repository. You can change the source installed by gem or use source from CVS.
