What I meant
by non-bindable is that this is the error message in the java console
when the applet tries to open the server connection after, for
example, navigating away from the page and then returning to it. The
problem is that when navigating away from the page and then returning,
the applet thinks the connection is closed but the browser must be
keeping it open.

Most likely what is happening is that the socket is not getting closed
when you navigate away. I worked on a project a few months ago that
used applets to communicate with a server program running at the
applet's host. I do know that you must use the new plugin which is only
available in later versions of 1.6 (I can't remember exactly which).
The reason for this is that stop() and destroy() may not get called in
earlier versions when the browser leaves the page. Also there may be
problems with certain browser versions too.
