Hi all
I created a small chat server (you know, Sockets, ServerSockets, threads ..)and the clients will be applets.
I created the following class :

the applet code contains :

Ok, every thing is ok and there is no error and the server and applets are working correctly.
but I am wondering why I don't get a SecurityException ?
my applet is using sockets, which are not allowed in unsigned applets (my jar is unsigned) ??
any ideas ??

Depends how you're running it. Applets are (generally) allowed to connect to the server they're downloaded from.
