lets take them one by one

  • java -Djava.security.policy=policy.ini $PC2CN $*
  • to be
  • java -Djava.rmi.server.hostname="" -Djava.security.policy=policy.ini $PC2CN $*
  • of course change the ip according to your server ip

and make this edit in all the executables you will run {team, board, judge.....}
