Recently, Im working on a school major project about Java networking game, Im doing the server-client applet that can work over the network, but fail. It shows the following error:
java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.net.SocketPermission 220.127.116.11:5001 connect,resolve)
What can be done to the above error? Please help, its extremely urgent!!!!!!!!!!!!Thanks in advance.
(Please note that I have to use Java 2 to create the applets and I am using Windowx XP)
if applets could create sockets, they could connect to anywhere and hence your computer could become a weapon of denial-of-service-attack
hence, it's not allowed, hence the security exception
actually, to be fair, applets can create socket connections.. but only back to the server they came from. use getDocumentBase() to disover the server address
