HI

I want to be able to instantiate a class (data values) by accessing a file at
the originating site. I have set up my own server and I have to fight thru a
firewall. I tried socket connecting back to the applet's originating site but
had no success. What would be the best way to do this in Java?
RMI? Servlets?  I do not have a servlet server though...

Thanks!

I assume that you already know how to access an http server without a firewall, otherwise let me know.

To go through a firewall, your applet must first know the proxy server's address, I mean the IP address and port (normally 8080), then open a connection to the proxy server rather than web server, then send the request as following:

GET http://www.yourserver/yourpath HTTP/1.0
Host: www.yourserver

Please not that this is only the minimum reuqest header, what you should do is first to replace add the host part to your request line, the other headers should remain.  After that the proxy server will send you everything, as though you were directly connecting to the web server.

A servlet does not help.
