  2. Edit the $CLIENT_HOME/etc/client.properties file, to configure the RMI properties as follows:

  3. Edit the $RHINO_BASE/etc/defaults/config/config_variables file (and $RHINO_BASE/node-XXX/config/config_variables for any node directory that has already been created) to specify port numbers as follows:
