Working around the sand box

Looks like you are violating the
sandbox. An applet can only make
a socket connection to the machine
from where it was downloaded.
To get around this depends on the
JVM which is running your applet.
In case of Internet Explorer and
Netscape Navigator JVMs, you will
have to sign your applet according
to their individual specifications.
But the best thing to do would be
to use Java plugin 1.3.0 which will
look at your policy file to give
appropriate permissions to your
applet. In such a case, just edit your
policy file to exclusively grant
socket permissions to your applet.
