Hi All,

I have a problem while downloading an applet through HTTPS.
There is an html page which contains a link to an applet.
When I clicks on it, it starts downloading applet jar file.
Then I am gettinng an error, in java plug-in console. HTTPS response=404

at sun.plugin.protocol.https.BrowserHttpsInputStream.openStream(Native Method)
at sun.plugin.protocol.https.BrowserHttpsInputStream.<init>(Unknown Source)
at sun.plugin.protocol.https.BrowserHttpsURLConnection.getInputStream(Unknown Source)
at sun.plugin.cachescheme.PluginURLConnection.downLoadFile(Unknown Source)

at sun.plugin.AppletViewer.loadJarFiles(Unknown Source)
at sun.applet.AppletPanel.runLoader(Unknown Source)

at Source)

when I press OK button in the console, a ClassNotFound Exception is shown in the browser window. I am not able to view the applet.

Anybody has any idea abt this?
Do I need to change any settings in my browser

The response code 404 means that the server could not find the requested URL.
I agree. Here's the link:
