How can an applet get the name and/or the IP address
of the Web server machine.
Please do not suggest, passing them as parameters, I want
to use one HTML file in many installations.

Try using InetAddress class's getLocalHost() method and use getHostName() method.

No, that gives me the name of the local machine (where the browser is running).
I need the machine where the Web server, from which the applet was loaded, runs.

(working from memory )
this should work

this.getCodebase().getHost();

(where this is the Applet)
or i'm wrong ?

P.S. Are you sure that getLocalHost WILL return the local machine address (for unsigned applet). What about security restrictions ??

and then InetAddress.getByName to find the IP address

public static InetAddress getByName(String host) throws UnknownHostException

hope this helps
