Chapter 4. Encrypt Network Traffic
4.1. Specify Which Network Interface JBoss EAP 6 Uses
Isolating services so that they are accessible only to the clients who need them increases the security of your network. JBoss EAP 6 includes two interfaces in its default configuration, both of which bind to the IP address
localhost, by default. One of the interfaces is called
management, and is used by the Management Console, CLI, and API. The other is called
public, and is used to deploy applications. These interfaces are not special or significant, but are provided as a starting point.
managementinterface uses ports
9999by default, and the
publicinterface uses port
8080, or port
8443if you use HTTPS.
Stop JBoss EAP 6.Stop JBoss EAP 6 by sending an interrupt in the appropriate way for your operating system. If you are running JBoss EAP 6 as a foreground application, the typical way to do this is to press Ctrl+C.
Restart JBoss EAP 6, specifying the bind address.Use the
-bcommand-line switch to start JBoss EAP 6 on a specific interface.
Example 4.1. Specify the public interface.
EAP_HOME/bin/domain.sh -b 10.1.1.1
Example 4.2. Specify the management interface.
Example 4.3. Specify different addresses for each interface.
EAP_HOME/bin/domain.sh -bmanagement=127.0.0.1 -b 10.1.1.1
Example 4.4. Bind the public interface to all network interfaces.
EAP_HOME/bin/domain.sh -b 0.0.0.0
-bcommand-line switch to specify an IP address at runtime, so this is not recommended. If you do decide to do this, be sure to stop JBoss EAP 6 completely before editing the XML file.
