I have an applet that uses http to communicate to a process running on its host. This applet works fine when not behind a firewall, and I know how to configure Navigator 4 so that it does not prevent the applet from communicating when run behind a firewall.
How can I convince IE 4 to allow the http connection?
The proxy forces a DNS lookup which violates an applet security requirment. Netscape has a technique for avoiding this, does Microsoft?
