I am having a problem while developing case study namely on line shopping. There are some 6 screens in it. I have developed each screen as an applet. Now, in the first screen there is a button, which on click will call second applet . The path for the second applet is hardcoded in to an URL object and is loaded using getappletcontext.showdocument(url) method in the action listener for that button. Now from the second applet I am trying to connect to the server which is also in my M/c , then it is throwing security exception saying cannot connect to the IP address which happens to be my Machine IP address. What could be the solution for this problem. Pls. let me know Thanks in advance suresh namasuresh I would appreciate if you could send answer to this e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Modified by Jahan.
