Thank You Thaths for this useful link! I got a lot of relevant info, and
i hope i'll be able to solve the problem.

As long as we're using "appletviewer", it doesn't matter...
But this doesn't seem to hold true when using a browser(i used

"Netscape's engineers have found it useful to modify the security
behavior of Communicator in several ways. "

It gives:
netscape.security.AppletSecurityException: security.Couldn't connect to
'' with origin from ''.

Unfortunately, javakey is not supported by netscape, and getting a
certificate for digitally signing my applet costs $200

oh, well! :)


Monterey... is decidedly the pleasantest and most civilized-looking
in California ... [it] is also a great place for cock-fighting, gambling
of all sorts, fandangos, and various kinds of amusements and knavery.
