I don't remember the details too well, but I think it was that the
eSIS app server is only certified against specific versions of the JRE
(which is effectively what the Jinitiator is). The eSIS config can be
massaged to accept connections from other JREs, which is what we did,
specifically from Linux hosts.

So the long and short of it is that you need to either install the
1.4.2_06 JRE or get your eSIS people to allow connections from other
JREs in Linux.
