It doesnt go that way under linux. The implications are obvious. If any host can connect to the machine running the aplet, you could tell java to do things like the boserver. If you have a completely open socket, its rock n' roll ! BTW - dont be afraid to release the code. It makes it more easy to the rest of us, to see what happened. And the script kids got lots of evil tools out there, so I think they wouldnt be too interested in code they have to alter before its useful. Best Regards Nino
