    Question java.security.AccessControlException: access denied ("java.util.PropertyPermission" "user.home" "read")

    My profile:

    I have NO Java programming skills but this site may help me solve my problem.


    I have a server (actually a few servers) which are IBM 3850 M2 / x3950 M2 -[72336SU]-. To access the back end of the server, that is, to be able to control the server as if I was actually in front of it, I access it's ASM portal which is http[:]// I can then see all the hardware details for the server and the one important option is the Remote Control menu item. When I click this menu item, I click on the "Start Remote Control" link and it opens a Java applet.

    This is my problem:

    The applet opens and I get 2 boxes on the browser screen saying "Error. Click for details". Clicking this text shows a dialog box with Application Error, AccessControlException, access denied "("java.net.SocketPermission" "" "connect,resolve")

    So my question is - why am I getting this error and how do I fix it? I've attached the console log in case it helps.

    it opens a Java applet.
    Java applets are no longer supported by most modern browsers. I don't know how you are able to execute them with the browsers you listed. The only browser that I can get to work with an applet is Internet Explorer 11. I think it required an entry in an Exception list controlled by the Java Icon in the Control Panel for Windows 10.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
