#119 DumpTask cannot fetch from my remote host

Version 2.1.0
JaCoCo (32)

I run my server on RHEL 6.1.
My Ant tasks are run from Windows Viste Enterprise, sp2.

DNS is enabled on the server and i can connect to my client with both IP and machine name.

But when I invoke the DumpTask using the hostname of my server, I get 'Unable to dump coverage data'.
If I try to do the same using a tunnel and, it works fine.

Opening a telnet session from Windows also works, so there is no firewall blocking the port.
Setting up other socket servers on both sides is not a problem either.

    By default the JaCoCo agent binds to the loopback interface only. In this case you can't establish remote connections.

    You can use the 'address' option of the agent to specify a interface to bind to. Or specify 'address=*' to bind to any interface.

    See documentation: http://www.eclemma.org/jacoco/trunk/doc/agent.html
