With JAVA 6.0, when I hit the "OK" button after entering my username and password it gives me the message of " unknown protocol: socket", what can I do ?

JAVA 6.0 has some weird default settings for WINXP that cause many applications like KGS to fail.  The solution for the error message is as follows:

  1.  Open control panel, click on the JAVA icon
  2.  Click on Network Settings
  3.  Select the "Direct Connect" option.
  4.  Select OK, Apply the new settings, and then select OK to exit.

This is a link to the JAVA forums where the solution is described:

Thanks to Adam for bringing that method.
