Connecting to a remote servlet from an unsigned applet

My applet connects to a remote servlet (on a different server). I could obviously connect to it fine with a signed applet, but now my applet is no longer signed.

I understand an unsigned applet can access a servlet on the same web server host, but the problem is that the servlets are on a different server...

Is there some simple way I can create a file (html or whatever) on the web server host that can accept requests from the applet and redirect them to the remote servlets?

Cheers,
James

You'd need some kind of active server component (Servlet, ASP, PHP, ...) to achieve this. It would be more like proxying, though, not redirection, since the flow would be applet-->server1-->server2-->server1-->applet.
