Is it the case that the JVM provides implicit support for proxy servers (including NTLM authentication)The question is ill-formed. The JVM provides nothing. The java.net classes provide http.proxyHost/proxyPort, https.proxyHost/proxyPort, ftp.proxyHost/proxyPort, socksProxyHost/ProxyPort, and java.net.Proxy & ProxySelector. See Java Networking and Proxies.
or is this something that must be explicitly supported by the Applet?More probably it is provided by the browser in the case of an Applet but I am no expert on that.
I ask this as we recently implemented a Forefront TMG proxy server which uses integrated (NTLM) authentication. Everything in the browser works except for Java Applets (or at least 100% of the ones I've tried).Java applets doing what? Being loaded? connecting their own Sockets? URLs?

i can't agree with it since the issue is the same as described through the whole threadIrrelevant.
which it is not a closed thread/issue... because the original poster abandoned it (and the OTN forums) months ago.
It is not my intention to hijack anyone's thread... yet you did, and did it twice, which is now appearing as being rude.
