Connect to Java Management Extensions (JMX) through a remote connector to the
Java Virtual Machine (JVM) that runs the Diffusion™. This connector is not integrated with the Diffusion server security and you
must configure additional security in the JVM.
The JVM that runs Diffusion accepts remote connections from
JMX clients such as JConsole and Java™ VisualVM.
Use the ports you have configured to connect a JMX management console to the Diffusion server. These connections can be
made over Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
Configure security for your remote JMX
The security users and roles defined for the JVM do not integrate with the security provided by the Diffusion server
When starting Diffusion, set the properties required
for your remote JMX connection.
Note: If you are using a firewall that employs network address translation (NAT),
you might still be unable to connect to Diffusion even
when the JMX ports are left open.
To make a secure connection or a connection through a firewall, you can use SSH tunnelling:
Establish an SSH connection to the
fire-walled Diffusion server.
Tunnel the remote method invocation (RMI) registry port and JMX service port through SSH.
Use JMX to connect to the local ends
of the tunneled ports.
