But the applet has to be aware of the proxy, doesn't it ?
Because it tries to address its server...or do I miss something ?
I meant, to be able to use any applet coming in, as long as its

Any more light ?
Thank's again and best regards !
P.S: again, please, copy my personnal address, too. I'm not part of the
list due to low bandwidth at home.
