Hello, i am developing a servlet in which i have to read data from some other web application(at present this another web application is running on different machine, but on same LAN). To do that i establish httpUrlConnection. Following is the code
the code gives java.net.SocketException while opening the connection. I got even further confused when i added 188.8.131.52 in the list of "do not use proxy server for following ip addres" in Internet Explorer and my servlet started working correctly. what i am not able to understand is the relation between establishing Socket Connection from a servlet and IE. I am using window 2000. can any body help me.

thanks for the reply Ernest. Are we talking about IE running on the machine the servlet runs on yes thats correct in other words, the servlet is running on Windows? i mentioned in my post that I am using window 2000. [ February 04, 2004: Message edited by: Prakash Dwivedi ]

Yes, but using it for what? Are you talking about IE and the servlet running on the same physical machine, or are you talking about IE being used to access the servlet from a client machine? While I'm asking, what servlet container are you using?
