If it's the applet that is trying to receive data from the database, you
should be using the thin client driver. Since the applet is being served up
from a server that is physically different from the database server, your
applet will need to be signed.
Now, I have not gone throught the firewall, but I believe your firewall needs
to be configured correctly to understand Oracle's needs. Talk to your sys
admin about it.
Check out the the javasoft web site for info on how to sign your applet.
