Hey guys, I am in serious need of help. I am writing an application for a company and I want to make sure this is possible. On the server side, there is an applet that requires a login, not a problem. It then launches an applet window. What I need to do is this: have the applet window be the socket server on my website, and from a computer, write a simple application that runs via the main method, connects to the socket connection applet on the web and then sends information to the server. Is it possible to make a socket connection between an applet hosted on my website and an application running on my computer? I'm on a deadline, and any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Applets can only connect back to the server from which they were downloaded from unless you digitally sign them or alter the client side's java policy file.
