Why does Java applet on my website run from a computer far away but not my computer?

I have an applet I wrote and put it on my website. The website is hosted somewhere other than my local computer. My brother, who is in another state, can log on to my website and play my applet. But every time I go to my website, nothing shows but a blank space. Any ideas? Could it be local settings on my computer? I would imagine it would give me some sort of error at least...

Please let me know if the applet streams for you.

It's probably local settings. Regardless, applets are old obsolete technology and you really shouldn't be using them anymore. If you want to make an interactive application in the web browser, I suggest learning JavaScript.

You may well be right. Those errors would appear in the Java console, so that's where you should look.

Although when I try to run it, I just get the dialog box which says that it's blocked by Java security (because it's an unsigned applet). Probably you could run it on a computer with a very outdated version of Java, one which hasn't had all the security patches applied.
