This isn't so much a programming question, but stay with me... I uninstalled the SDK on my laptop, reinstalled (j2sdk 1.4.2), and now my Java programs can no longer connect to the internet! What's more, I can't even establish a connection with the debugger (in Eclipse, for example). What's up with this?! Something that might matter (although I doubt it), is that I'm on a laptop (WinXP) with wireless access. I am not behind a proxy. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Jon
In the same vein as what Dirk is saying, also check Win XP's built in "Internet Connection Firewall" settings. Search Windows' help for "Firewall" for info. [ edited typo -ds ] [ February 15, 2004: Message edited by: Dirk Schreckmann ]

I've checked and double checked the firewall issue - but no luck - I haven't installed one and I've made sure that the WinXP firewall isn't running. What I think is interesting is that I haven't even messed with my internet settings since reinstalling Java. The only thing I have done is uninstall and then reinstall Java - that's why this is so puzzling!!! Any more advice?

Can you use a Java app to connect to a service running on the localhost.
