Hi guys,

I have been reading about applet security and have a small confusion on the priv signed applets have regarding network connections.

1. Can a signed applet connect to a different machine/server (not the originating host)?
2. Also can an unsigned applet connect to originating host ?(I know it cant to others)?

Thanks
Ashwin
