Yes, it is a Java-applet-security problem. An applet can only load classes 
from the same server that the HTML-page that contained the applet was loaded 
from.

In mWeb I fake all requests through a local HTTP-server that requests the 
missing class-files using multicasting (if not already available localy 
ofcourse) and hands back that information to the local browser. One mWeb 
application is run localy at each receiver.
