    Default Permissions?

    I'm making a little applet that gets some information from a server and displays it, however, I get this error:

    java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.net.SocketPermission game-host.org resolve)

    I googled this error, and tried granting permissions in the java.policy:
    permission java.net.SocketPermission "*", "connect, accept, reslove";

    Needless to say, that didn't work.

    My code works fine when run in command line, just not when I try to run it in a browser.

    Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? I'm fairly new to Java, so excuse me if it's a simple problem.
    Thanks!

    An applet that runs fine in an appletviewer/command line but throw security exceptions in a browser is usually indicative that you need to sign your applet. See How to sign an applet (and get it to work) [Locked], which is one of the better descriptions I've seen on how to sign an applet yourself without forking over the dough for a 'real' signed applet. Post back if that doesn't work

    Great! It created a bit of confusion, bit it worked in the end! Thanks!

    But from the sound of it, does this mean I'll have to eventually shell out money to let people use my applet?
