I have an Applet which runs fine in AppletViewer, but seems to hang up in a browser. I've already downloaded the Java Plug-In and used the HTML converter on the HTML file. Using the Java Console, I've found that there is an AccessControlException, specifically at %HOST% resolve where %HOST% is the name of my Web server. What causes this and how can I fix it?

An unsigned applet running in a browser is forbidden to talk to any server except the one it was loaded from. The AppletViewer has no such constraints.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
