Hi guys/girls

I found questions similar to this in the discussion group, but no responses,
so if this is a stupid question that has been sorted out before, please be

I created an applet that uses Sockets to connect to a server written in Visual
C++. The server opens a socket to listen for connections and the applet connects
to the socket using the Socket.Connect(host, port) call. This works fine
when I run it out of Jbuilder, but the moment I try to run it out of a web
browser, such as IE5, I get an exception that basically says it cannot access
the server. I believe that this has something to do with the browser security,
but is there any way around this?

Thanx for the help
