If you cannot connect from JConsole or VisualVM using standard parameters, try one of the following ways:
1. In the wcs-core.properties settings file replace
where 192.168.1.5 is the IP address of the network interface the server runs on.
See also: Starting the server.
2. In /etc/hosts
add a link from localhost to the IP address of the network interface, for example
As a result, you can connect to the JMX monitoring system directly through the server address (i.e. 192.168.1.5:50999) or through a tunnel (i.e. localhost:50999).
Creating a tunnel is described in the below section.
