    Default Applet connecting to server

    I don't know very much about networking or applets. Basically, I need a way for the server to send information to the browser outside of a response to an HTTPrequest; I don't want to have to continually poll the server using AJAX.

    My question is: can an applet always open a socket to the host on which they were loaded? With s = new Socket( this.getCodeBase().getHost() ) , that is?

    Nothing else I have to do? No security problems or firewalls or anything to worry about?

    Any help is very much appreciated.
