    Default using Java to access a secure webpage, Exception occurred: Connection timed out

    Hi, I am using Java to access a secure web page (https://...) that requires a userid and password. I am using the following Java code:
    Java Code:
    String urlAddr = "https://webaddress?userid=USERID&password=PASSWORD";
    URL url = new URL(urlAddr);
    URLConnection con = url.openConnection();
    InputStream in = con.getInputStream();
    BufferedReader result = new BufferedReader( new InputStreamReader( in ) );
    String Info = result.readLine();
    The above code gives the following timeout exception:

    Java Code:
    Exception occurred: Connection timed out: connect Stack Trace:[Ljava.lang.StackTraceElement;@d6c16c
    I am behind a firewall that requires authentication (userid and password) before I can gain access to the Internet. Therefore, there are two levels of authentication. I am only addressing one above. Can someone please advise to what options are available?

    Write some code to get out of the firewall, manually deactivate the firewall

    both of those would work. try looking at the APIs

    one thing I would try first though, is when writing the method, after the arguments, add throws TimeoutException, or whatever the name of the specific exception, and just see what the program does w/ the firewall
