The "access denied" error looks more like trying to run the server in an environment where it's not allowed to do things like open ports. It's not an applet, is it? That's pretty unlikely to be allowed to open ports. Similarly, some application servers won't allow it.

By the way, it seems to me that the problem is because of the SecurityManager. Inside your code, do you have something like:
If yes, you can try to remove it. If you set the SecurityManager, you need to specify the policy file, e.g. java -Djava.security.policy=server.policy WhateverClass nd grant the permission for the SocketPermission.
