I try to connect to yahoo game just yesterday, but then i found out ie won't start the sun java plug-in itself. I'm so sure that i have that install, coz i just update it. My computer has nth wrong to run java appz, coz i also write java program by JBuilder, i can view applet w/ Netscape 7.1, but not IE6. I installed the plug-in probably, and i can see the option of Sun Java Plug-in in the internet Option (Under Tools, Internet Option, Advanced. The Sun Java is checked) I also make sure the the java security set to low safty. I really have no idea why the IE won't start the java plug-in. And I reinstall that just now, but it still won't start. However, i have no problem w/ Netscape 7.1. Does anyone have any suggestion on this?
The second q is, I'm use Norton Internet Security, and the personal firewall is on. Even tho i added a rule to open port 11999 (the port to play yahoo games) and allow computers ( to ( to connect to my computer thr tcp/ip, but i still can't connect to the game server. But when i disable the firewall, i could play the games. So i'm sure it's the firewall problem. Did i do anything wrong? Or did i miss something important? I gave permission to the netscape 7.1, java.exe, and javaw.exe, so it could access the port 11999, and also the java plug in. But still, is there anything i forgot?

Thank you for everyone's suggestions.
