I have a nifty applet that gets it's data from a database via an ASP on the web server the Applet is launched from. I have no problem recieving data, but when I try to update the data by sending a URL string to the web server/ASP file it fails.

If I just paste the URL from the Java Console to the address window of a browser (IE 6.0) it works fine, updates the database as expected.

Does anyone know of a reason the Applet won't do the same?

Are there any error messages in the Java console of the browser when the applet fails?
Copy and paste the contents of the console here if you have further questions.

Also can you see the request that the server gets from both sources: manual and via the applet? Are there any differences?
