Dear all,

I've written an applet running in a webpage, which will open a socket connecting to 127.0.0.1, the localhost.

It work fine in my development environment (browser & webserver run in localhost), but when I deploy the website to a server,the applet always run with exception "access denied (java.net.SocketPermission 127.0.0.1:20000 connect,resolve)".

I've have signed the jar with a cert. I have changed the java.policy in system to allow it, but still it didnt work.

The grant permission that i gave is :



kindly provide me a solution.

If the applet is signed then no policy change is needed - those are two different ways to accomplish the same thing. Are you getting the dialog that asks you whether you want to trust the certificate?

You may have to run the code as privileged code, as described in http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/HowCanAnAppletReadFilesOnTheLocalFileSystem.

Hi,
I am getting the dialog for trust certificate. The problem is i am calling the applet method through a javascript call. I feel this might be causing the problem.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
