According to sun's bug reports 4195039 and 4202302, support for https (http over an encrypted secure socket layer) was added to Java Plugin version 1.2.2. I just downloaded the latest Java plugin (in the JRE and JDK) but still can't get https to work. When running the plugin with JRE1.1.7B, it dies when Class.newInstance is called to create a sun.plugin.protocol.https.handler because there is no such class. When running the plugin with JRE1.2, it dies when trying to load a class called javax.net.ssl.HandshakeCompletedListener Has anyone gotten this to work?? Thanks for any help you can give! Phil
