I have an applet that connects to a server through a proxy using https. It works fine most of the time. Sometimes (? maybe when the network is heavily loaded), a SocketException occurs with either the "unexpected end of file" message or "Software caused connection abort: recv failed" message when calling URLConnection.getInputStream() I use JRE 1.4.2_08. Any clue ?
