If you have problems running several or all Java applets, here you will find help. If you
have problems with only one applet, that applet is most likely configured wrong or contains a
Java is in theory platform and browser independent and with an updated
installed, it should be able to work anywhere.
We used to have our own Java diagnostic applet here, but
has evolved quite a bit and we believe that Sun's own diagnostics are very - if not, more - reliable, for certain
in the future. Sun worked out a very nice diagnostic page to test whether your version is installed correctly,
or if you have the latest version.

Enable applets to connect to the internet
There could be several reasons why applets aren't able to connect to the internet:
- Your ISP: Your internet provider could have a proxy server or a gateway that
blocks the applet's connection attempt. Contact your internet provider to get this kind
of problem solved.
- Your firewall or router: Your firewall or router could block the applet's
connection attempt. Configure your firewall or router in such way that it allows the applet
to connect over the internet or (temporary) disable your firewall.
- A security exception: If your Java security is high instead of normal, it could
be that a connection attempt is not allowed. Adjust the security settings for Java.
If you are on a local network, your network administrator can allow or
disallow applets to connect to the internet.
