Hello All,

Does anyone have Java web start working,on a defualt install of K12LTSP v 5 ?
I installed the Java packages that are "extras" on the K12LTSP ftp sites.
I have went through all of the Java-Plugin Control Panel as well as the
Java Web Start panel,,changing the proxy setting back and forth changing
the path to mozilla and firefox,and back,etc but when trying to run the
demos/Web Start at Sun's site Im always just presented with "download"
option. I'm not enough of a html guru to know how to t-shoot this. I've
googled out and havent found an even close to decent how to,,on how to
diagnose how to correct a non-working Java web start for either Mozilla
and or Firefox. I m not sure if there is an easy MIME type hack,,to make
it respond,possibly?
Anyone have any Ideas?
