If an applet is suspected of failing due to this change you can verify that by setting the logging level of the Java Console to 5 and looking for logging strings beginning with "socket access restriction" which will describe the specific cause of the mismatch and will help in identifying the correct workaround to use as described below:
- Add a new host name forward map entry (in /etc/hosts, NIS, or DNS) in a special form which is recognized by Java for the purpose of validating IPv4 and IPv6 name service mappings.
- The IPv4 general name form followed by an /etc/hosts file fragment example for IP address 10.11.12.13 is:
There is an equivalent form for IPv6 addresses which uses the IP6.ARPA domain root format defined in RFC 3596.
As an alternative to updating name service records, it may be possible to safely modify the applet to perform the network action using only it's own permissions independent of the web page which contains it by using the doPrivileged() method of the java.security.AccessController class.
