Java web start fails in the splash screen (Splash: recv failed), how come?

It seems that it comes from third party softwares such as antivirus/spywares and firewall.

For instance with the firewall "Comodo":

A workaround is to launch CGoban with the -Xnosplash option (add that argument to the shortcut).

For instance for the antivirus "Panda Antivirus".

Just disable the antivirus, and it will work fine.

Another workaround:
put the JAVA_HOME directory as exception in "Panda Process Protection Service". Then the antivirus will let java web start run.
