I am writing an RMI program, and I have borrowed a laptop from IT people in my department to use as a server. However I do not have administrator privileges on this laptop, and am thus unable to allow my application to bypass the firewall. Does this mean I will be unable to use this computer as an RMI server? Are there any workarounds?
Applications like google chrome are allowed to access the internet from this device, so accessing the network is not a problem, so I feel like there should be a way for my application to access the internet as well.
Thank you in advance!
