A quick glance through the Java code doesn't show any readily apparent
1.2-isms.  However, IIRC, Microsoft's 1.1 JVM isn't really fully
Java-compliant.  Do you have a log of the errors which you're getting?

It's also possible that the applet must be signed to open socket
connections -- I don't recall.
