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)?


The only way to make your dream come true is to wake up.
