Hello,
I began using Forte to edit my Java programs and found it very useful! THe only problem I am having is that is uses AppletViewer to run the Applets I create. I am having problems with the security issues of trying to retrieve infomation from another server when the applet is run from the C drive on my computer. I noticed on some other posts after searching with google that there is supposed to be a "Unrestricted Network Access" option in the appletviewer options. I do not see anything but a unrestricted class option. Am I completely missing something here? THis seems silly since there is really no way to test my applet without running explorer which is SO SLOW or running netscape (which I cannot find an option to allow a person to see the Java Applet console) so im forced to download the applet to the server EVERYTIME I want to run it and test it. Theres got to be an easier way. Can someone help me???
Thanks,
James Johnson

I can't say for sure about Forte, but the ability to connect to any server in the AppletViewer is built-in, not an option. It has to do with AppletViewer's relaxed sandbox rules. On my copy of Netscape, the Java Console menu handgs from Communicator/Tools.
