i have an applet which runs on the server. now i wanted it to run on different machine..
i mean, initially i ran the server and the client in the same machine.
now i want to run the server in my machine and the client in some other machine.
what is that i need to do now to do this.

what is the address i have to give in the clients web browser.
my program also uses a dll file..
should i be copying the dll in the client machine???

if not copying is there a way to copy the dll to the client machine in the background( without the knowledge of the client[user])

any thing else i need to do??
thanks in advance

You need to make sure that the firewall on your machine (assuming there is one) allows incoming connections on whichever port you're using for HTTP on the server.

Unless you're planning on installing the DLL on all client machines, it needs to be distributed along with the applet (say, in the same directory). The JNLPAppletLauncher can help with that.
