    Default InetAddress worn't work :(

    Hi,

    I'm doing a project for uni and not sure why this won't work. Still new to java so anything that's really out of whack let me know

    Cheers in advance
    public class Main
    {
     
            static public void main(String[] argv)
    	{
                String read;
                Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
                Thread t1;
                System.out.print("Would you like to connect to the cinema? Y/N");
                read = in.nextLine();
                InetAddress adtep;
                adtep = new InetAddress(InetAddress.getByName(argv[0]));
                t1 = new Thread ( new readFromServer (adtep,5000));
     
                if(read == "Y")
                {
                    System.out.print("Connecting to server");
     
                   t1.start();
                }
                if(read == "N"){System.out.print("exiting ");}
                else{System.out.print("Fail");}
                }
     
    class readFromServer implements Runnable
    {
        InetAddress addy;   
        int port;           
        DatagramSocket reSocket;   
        DatagramPacket rePacket;   
        byte[] buffer = new byte[1024];
     
        public readFromServer (InetAddress addy, int port)
        {
            this.addy = addy; //initialize addy
            this.port = port;   //initialize port
     
            try //Try has to be used to initialize these variables
            {
            this.reSocket.setSoTimeout(0); 
            this.reSocket = new DatagramSocket(this.port); 
            this.rePacket = new DatagramPacket(this.buffer,this.buffer.length);
            }
            catch(IOException ie)
            {
            System.out.print("Error: readFromServer.initializingVariables.001"+
                     " Please contact for this error");
                try {Thread.sleep(1000);
                    System.exit(1);}
                catch(InterruptedException iea){}
     
            } 
        }
     
        readFromServer(String string, String string0) {
            throw new UnsupportedOperationException("Not yet implemented");
        }
     
        public void run()
        {
            while(true) //The thread will continuously run to pick up data
            {
     
                //The following statement will wait untill data is recieved
                try{reSocket.receive(rePacket);}
                catch(IOException ie){}
            }
     
     
        }

    For future reference, please use the code tags (see my signature for instructions). What about this 'won't work'? Does it compile? Throw exceptions (what are they)? Behave incorrectly (what do you expect and what do you get)? Be as detailed as possible
