Dear All, I have webserver on which my JSPs run and a separate server(on different machine) written in Java socket programming. when i am trying to run the client in my browser(like http://webserver/client.jsp client files on the webserver) i am getting java.security.AccessControlException: Access Denied (java.net.SocketPermission Server:3456 connect,resolve) If i have the socket server on the same machine as the webserver or if i edit the java.policy file to include socket permissions on the machine from which iam browsing iam not getting this error. Can anyone explain me how to overcome this problem without modifying the policy file on the clients system. Ramesh Babu

You don't say this, but I'm guessing the "client" is an applet; otherwise the policy files on the client wouldn't matter. Applets are specifically prohibited from making network connections from machines other than the host they were downloaded from. The only way around this is by using a digital signature in the applet; here's some information about that. I'm moving this to the Applets forum; followups over thers.
