ok......
i'm not really new to java (or a guru), but i have a question (realy a shot in the dark), and i'm not sure where to post it....i'm not gonna go into details unless i find someone willing to help me.....


first i am currentley developing a simple applet that uses a DatagramSocket (connected to a simple server app i wrote), along with DatagramPackets to communicate.....the server will not be handling a large amount of clients, and i found it easier to use the DatagramSocket and packets (than a ServerSocket/Socket with IOStreams) to communicate....
the problem lies in the client (applet).......when i load the applet(client) into my browser, i get an exception(don't have the exact exception on hand, but i can post it if i get someone who wants to help and i am asking this question in the right place).......do i need to override some security setting or what.......if switch the entire client into a standalone app, everything works fine.

please help if you can
