Java Console questions

I am trying to debug an applet and am having a problem with the java console.
If I run the applet (in appletviewer or IE) on my machine on the network, the java console sends the appropriate info including system.out lines that I have included in the applet.
However, if I run the applet on any other machine in my network, the java console does nothing and doesn't pop up automatically in IE like it does on my machine.
The applet communicates with a server program through sockets, and that program is on a seperate machine from any of these tests.
Might my java console be different because it is the development machine, and I've installed the JDK there?
How can i do debugging from other machines (ie, how can I get the verbose java console) that don't have the JDK/JDSDK installed?

Ok, I figured this out. I just needed to enable 'show java console' in the java plugin settings, not the IE or netscape settings.
I agree. Here's the link:
