Applet permissions, how come it works on my computer when it shouldn't?
Posted on 2006-04-12
I have an applet that connects to a server. It seems that the applet somehow has special permissions when run on my computer, it can connect to a different host than the one it was loaded from. As far as I'm aware this is not supposed to be possible. I have re-installed java and deleted all java.policy files on my system, but the applet keeps connecting. How could this be?
