Thanks, Mayank Jain ------- End of Forwarded Message I do not know what MIME type is used, when the browser requests a Java applet, so that it can start a Java VM. I believe it just sends Content-type: application/octet-stream but not sure. In any case, there is no reason that a FastCgi application could not just set the Content-type header to the above and then send the java applet to the server that sends it to the browser, although the point of doing that escapes me. Maybe you can be more precise at what exactly you are trying to accomplish. Stanley.
