(Note: Problem believed to be generic, but so far only reported on MS Windows platforms)

Java client is requesting the remote EJB and get's following response

Lookup error: Connection refused: connect; nested exception is: Connection refused: connect

even when java client is using code such as this:

env.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "com.evermind.server.rmi.RMIInitialContextFactory");
env.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, "admin");
env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "opmn:ormi://<HOST>.<DOMAIN>:<PORT>:ejbs/ejbsamples");
Context jndiCon = new InitialContext(env);

Note: The above example should be configured for opmn listening into port 6003, oc4j instance 'ejbs' and application named 'ejbsamples'.

The problem reproduces when requesting remotely only , if the ejb bclient is local, it works perfect
