I've made an applet using java.net.Socket to receive and send data. OutputStream().PrintWriter().println(String) is being used to write data on the socket opened at the port 8022. InputStream().InputStreamReader().BufferedReader().readLine() is being used to read data. Now in Visual Basic server I'm using winsock control. protocal is tcp, remotehost is localhost, remoteport is 0, localport is 8022. when I send data from applet it throws exception as follows java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect can anybody help me out? and what else security considerations I should look into if this is to be deployed over the internet? thanks in advance.
