JBoss EAP 5 listen on IPv6 and IPv4 interfaces

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • We were having the ipv6 and ipv4 sockets listening on jboss version 4.0.4 with the default hostname. In the jboss 5.0.0 the Appserver starts only on IPV4 interface.
  • Even if we specify the specific address(non global) with -b option like -b [2001:****] it starts listening but not for all the sockets and hence the incomplete deployment.
  • Is there a option to enable jboss to listen on both ipv4 as well as ipv6.
