Socket Permission Error

  Asked By: Kuhaylah    Date: Jul 13    Category: Java    Views: 967

I have an applet that keeps giving me the bellow error
when I would like to have a Socket connection created
to a computer that acts as a host.

The host has a ServerSocket within an application
which should be able to be accessed from
within the network.

Anyone have any tips for me?

Applets can normally only open a socket  back to the server from which the applet
originated. This leaves you with two

1.) Connect to a servlet or other process on the originating server and have
that process connect to the socket.
Essentially the servlet or other process becomes a proxy.

2.) Sign your applet.
