Bypass the need for a certificate (this howto is deprecated)Tag(s): DEPRECATED
Netscape provides a way to accept a codebase as trusted (then a certificate is not needed). This can be useful during development or in a private Intranet. In the Netscape Users directory, there is a file called prefs.js. Adding the line
Another way is to lower general security setting to more allow more freedom when running applets locally. Add or modify the following entries in the prefs.js:
user_pref("unsigned.applets.low_security_for_local_classes", true); user_pref("signed.applets.local_classes_have_30_powers", true); user_pref("signed.applets.low_security_for_local_classes", true); user_pref("signed.applets.verbose_security_exception", true);
NOTE: When adding or modifying the file prefs.js, Netscape must not be running because your modification will be overwritten. So shut down Netscape, edit the prefs.js and then restart Netscape.
With IE, you can achieve the same thing through the Internet option menu.
