My friend needs help from you guys, though it doesn't matter to you till it is helping SOMEONE...

Here is the question:

If I have a self signed applet that wants to print someting on the client
machine(i.e. machine on which the applet is accessed thru the
browser)...what changes are required in its security policy...

If the applet is signed, and the certificate is accepted by the user, then no policy change should be required. It may also be necessary to run the printing code as privileged code, as is described here. What problems is he encountering?
