Swing/DB2 deployment Issue

I have written a simple application w/a Swing Interface that queries an IBM database DB2. I attempted to deploy it on several other computers. However, it only worked on one other computer. By "worked" I mean I actually got results from the database. In all cases, the interface successfully appeared.

All the computers are running Windows XP Professional. I used Net Beans IDE.

I am truly stumped.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Your next step should be to find out what is going wrong on the computers where it "didn't work".

I'm trying to figure out what would be different on that one computer versus the others. It's not obvious where I should start. I'm not using an ODBC driver, so, I don't think it would be related to that.

I wonder if it could be a firewall issue?
I agree. Here's the link:
