Subject: Remote Containers Problems

Following the tutorial 2 of the Admin Guide of the Jade
web site as the following:
A platform can have containers on remote systems as well as locally. So if you have a second
computer networked to the first, try this.
On the second computer set up and run a JADE container with a PingAgent
in it. In other words, simply, type,
runjade -host Frodo -container ping1:examples.PingAgent.PingAgent.
This is exactly the same command as used above to create a container on
machine Frodo itself! Thanks to RMI, the system is transparent with
respect to hosts. Notice that, since an agent nicknamed ping0 already
exists on this platform, I must use a different nickname for this second
PingAgent, even though the new agent is running on a different machine.
So, what I did was:
1. On machine fusion01:
fusion01% java jade.Boot -gui agt1:MeetingAgent
2. On second remote machine fusion02:
fusion02% java jade.boot -host fusion05.doc.ic.ac.uk -cotainer
However, I got an error message in return:
jade.BootException: Error: Not possible tqqqo launch a platform on a
A platform must be launched on local host.
Then both machines fusion01 and fusion02 hang up.
I think I have followed what I have told in the tutolial, did I
misunderstand something? Could any one please give help.
