Java Embargo

Okay, I know Germany and the USA had their problems in the past. But this is going too far...


  1. Did you fix this? Got some users on our network annoyed by it. Thanks Al

  2. I ran into this problem at my job in the USA. It turns out that the proxy settings were not set for internet explorer, and the internet here is only accessable through a proxy server. Under Java's network settings, the proxy was set to "use browser settings". I could have either checked "use proxy server" and enter in the correct parameters, or set the proxy server in Windows' "internet options" which is where Internet Explorer gets its settings. After the proxy was set, I was able to download Java updates and the program ran fine.
