Need help with policytool, permissions.
Posted on 2002-04-21
I am developing an applet which needs to send data to another computer over UDP. I am having trouble giving myself permission to send data from a UDP socket.
I thought that I had granted myself permission to do anything by using the policytool to modify the file c:\winnt\profiles\administrator\.java.policy, but the applet is still causing a security exception.
I don't know if the problem is with my use of the policytool or in my applet. Does my applet need to request permission to perform the operation?
Help will be much appreciated.
