BTW where are you running the client i.e. on which machine, is it same as the one on which the rmiregistry is running or within the same local area network or from the some other comp connected to the internet ???

iam running the client through internet connection (Lan dissconnected)

You will need to open the rmiregistry port in you firewall, Also to overcome NAT you will need learn about Port forwarding.

How is you public IP connected to the Internet, is it via a Router ?
Honestly I am not yet entirely clear about your setup.
