I've had a search of the forums, and this seems to be a common issue on Linux. When trying to deploy content from one Alfresco instance to another on Linux (Ubuntu 8.04), I get the following errors in the log:
17:11:03,680 WARN  [remoting.rmi.RmiProxyFactoryBean] Could not connect to RMI service [rmi://172.16.249.139:50500/authentication] - retrying
17:11:03,730 ERROR [avm.actions.AVMDeploySnapshotAction] org.alfresco.service.cmr.avm.AVMException: Could not Initialize Remote Connection to 172.16.249.139
On the target machine (172.16.249.139), I get the following:
root@ubuntu-desktop:/opt/alfresco# lsof -i :50500
COMMAND  PID     USER   FD   TYPE DEVICE SIZE NODE NAME
java    9417 alfresco  133u  IPv6  57772       TCP alfresco-server-receiver:50500->alfresco-author:50185 (ESTABLISHED)

tcp6       0      0 172.16.249.139:50500    172.16.249.138:50185    ESTABLISHED
Anyone got any ideas? At this stage it's a dealbreaker for Alfresco on Linux - I don't want to have to try and repeat this evaluation on Windows if it's Linux-specific.
