    Cool Web App and network problems?(need help)

    This might be a little confusing, but here goes. I have developed an applet that writes a packet to a wifi using a dlink. Which i connect using sockets. Now i embedded this applet in html, and it worked fine. Then i started a web server to which other clients could sign in using a vpn. Then when the client trys to run my applet from their comp, it doesnt give any errors it just doesn't do anything. I have checked what packets are being sent over the vpn with wireshark and it says they send fine. What i think is the packets are sent to my comp but doesn't know what to do with them. It should take the packets then send them over the dlink to the wifi, but the packet never reach the dlink. My interenet connection is a normal dsl. Any! ideas are accepted and hoped for. Has to be some1 out there that knows what i going through.
    Much Thanks in Advance,

    Default

    Looks like the age-old problem. An applet can't open a socket to anywhere except the server it was downloaded from.

    Default any other ideas

    is there a language that could make it possible? or is just a lost cause?

    Default what about a signed applet?

    would a signed applet be able to do this. i thought that the java restrictions on opening a socket other than from the server it came from was only on unsigned applets?
