Hi,
Can someone please tell me why my chat applet is not accessible behind a firewall ? Is it because the port on which i am running the applet is not allowed on the proxy or is it because my applet is not signed. A quick response will be much appreciated here.
Thanx,
Bhaskar

If you want a quick reply, I should probably move this thread to the Sockets forum for you.

Yes,
Firewalls are usally setup to block ports which could be used for attacks. (any that are not the well known ports) They are also usually set up to block protocols that are usually expected on that port. If you want your chat applet to behave behind a firewall, you'll need to use http connection.

Hope This Helps
