Hello I am using following code for accessing EJB on a remote machine. com.nepasoft.npg.ejb.NpgTxn npgTxn = null; Properties props = new Properties(); props.put("java.naming.factory.initial", "org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContextFactory"); props.put("java.naming.factory.url.pkgs", "org.jboss.naming:org.jnp.interfaces"); props.put("java.naming.provider.url", "100.100.100.12:1099"); InitialContext ic = new InitialContext(props); Object objRef = ic.lookup("npg/NpgTxn"); System.out.println("ObjRef="+objRef); NpgTxnHome home = (NpgTxnHome)PortableRemoteObject.narrow(objRef,NpgTxnHome.class); npgTxn = home.create(); if(npgTxn.validateUser(customerId, txnPassword)){ request.setAttribute("MESSAGE", "The user is authenticated"); } The Same code works in jsp page but throws Exception while used in a servlet. 12:22:09,906 ERROR [LogInterceptor] EJBException in method: public abstract myEjb.HelloRemote
