The error is "Error connecting to server: java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.net.SocketPermission [http://www.forgottendusk.cjb.net] resolve)"
The applet is attempting to connect to the main game server on the machine that is hosting the applet. The applet should not need signing.
The odd part about this error is that, currently, it is only happening on Vista and Ubuntu, XP works just fine (I don't have access to any other platforms for testing).
Is there some reason Ubuntu and Vista won't allow the connect back to the hosting server?
Is it an issue with dynamic DNS used by the host?
OK, looking closer at the error, I see that the hosting page is forgottendusk.cjb.net and the error is for www.forgottendusk.cjb.net
... but changing the URL of the applet page to www.forgottendusk.cjb.net
doesn't change the error.
This is really old code that I helped out with when I was learning java many years ago. I am fairly certain it was built targeting 1.3 as a runtime platform.
Any help would be appreciated.
