How can I enable an applet to read files on my hard drive? I have already tried typing 'acl.read=/home/files' into my properties file and changing the access permissions of the files.
Many thanks...

Hi Elisabeth,
Reading and writing files are outside the Applet sandbox. In most cases you will need to sign your applet to make it trusted. Click on this link to get some informatin:
