Hi Sid, You don't need a policy file to start your client. For the server, I have my policy file in the same directory as the server.jar and it works, but I suppose you could also demand the user to locate it in the jdk*.*\jre\lib\security directory. I prefer to have it in the same directory as the server.jar because it means less installing for the user. Regards, Henk van Jaarsveld
