Hi,

First off, excuse any stupid questions, but I haven't delved into Java much.

Here's the problem...

I use a java applet in a web page. The applet was developed some while ago and has been working fine. A key part ofthe functionality is that it reads a text file on the server every n (configurable) seconds and refreshes the display in the applet. Worked fine in IE, but needs a bit of tweaking for Netscape/Mozilla etc.

Anyway, now it is not working in IE. If I update the file on the server, then I don't see the changes in the applet - even if I reload the page.

I've checked the file permissions etc and all look cool. The main difference is that I'm now connecting with ADSL via a router. Could it be router/firewall issue at my end.

Any ideas/suggestions would be fantastic, please let me know what other info would be useful to try and resolve.

Thanks guys,

Nick
