I have tried to "get up" ( to greater effectiveness ) on my project by building and installing the sample server project in the sources for jdk (1.5.0_12) - the server was running on the earler kernel win9x, but will not accept() now that I was forced to get a new sys. It is from the xp group, and do not know where or how to navigate the dll hell that is blocking. I tried looking in control panel, but did not find anything along the lines of allow service to run.

I would really like to test and develop on 127.0.0.0 and have additionally targeted an sort of "port" to the outside world that would strictly limit the servers that a few people could get email from. These persons will waste days looking at junk and the Trusted Authority for the site has a very positive iinitial positioning on the idea of giving the local a cable into my box, then this box doing a lot of screening and limiting so that email runs fast for business business, then they have to use the squeakin dialup if they insist on time-wasters.

All of this is very difficult to obtain useful information on, and trying to read 65,000 lines of kernel source just to understand TCP/IP stacks has not proven effective so far. I need to find a clear, full-text description of how exactly a cat-5 conductor and VPN and this stuff works at the breakout box level. It is really annoying to look and look for a website to help you out, and find almost nothing even related to the subject, and whenever I did find any tutorial pages it is designed to teach you programming in other compilers or bloated languages, If it is for networking, it assumes you allready know TCP/IP, or have equivalent isolation from field ops that you do not need to know. I've read through everything I could find, but still only have a vague understanding of the workings of port 25 and that type of thing. I'd eventually like to be able to program a simple networked game, so that I could achieve sufficient expertise by working locally on 127.0.0 & the project approved by Trusted Authority such that I could write an ai based email filter.

the server was running on the earlier kernel win9x, but will not accept()

What does "will not accept" mean? Throws an exception in the server? Won't allow others to connect?

My laptop has VPN software that prevents others from accessing a server on my machine. While inside the company network I can shut it down to test.

N:\root\index.html - succeded

http://localhost/index.html - failed

in other words, the server does not work under http. It was working on 9x, when I say VPN I mean that I would like to understand the networking in sufficient depth that I can see what is coming into the machine over the cat-5 cable, detecting and handling with Java code the situation.

Java provides a rich programming linguistic. I would like to use it to do some rather advanced work.
