Check the w3c.jigsaw.daemon package. It's purpose is to allow to run
mutliple servers along side Jigsaw itself (you will have to manually
edit the property file). Have a look at it, and don't hesitate to ask
questions , I'll be glad to help.

I guess this is because you are using the default RMI security
manager.

You will have to work on a security manager for Jiugsaw, that's not an
easy task, I am planning to investigate this myself when time allow
(basically have aplet based config through rmi)
