Hi,

I have an signed applet that tries to run ipconfig/all on user system to get the unique macAddress from the client machine

but each time I try to run it it throws the folling exception -



I tried to google the issue but it says that I need to set policy file in bb-manifest.xml. Where do i need to define this file & how would my applet gain refernce to policy from bb-manifest.xml

Looks like you might not have signed the jar properly. Does your signed jar have MYCERT entries under META-INF?

I've never heard of a bb-manifest.xml file; I doubt that it will help in this case.

The code may need to be run as privileged code, though. See HowCanAnAppletReadFilesOnTheLocalFileSystem for more details.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
