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 

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.


Ps. Sorry for the long delay in answering. Ds.
