I have a ADSL broadband DHCP connection. I am using D-Link GLB-802C ADSL router. Now I want to know what actually happens when I access internet through browser or any other program. I know all http communication is handled via TCP. I have following questions.
- while setting up the internet with the disk provided by router, I didn't made any setting of proxy so is the proxy not present, I just entered the username and password
- If router handling connection to ISP proxy, Do I need to make special configuration for JAVA P2P applications to communicate with other peers.
- My internet is working fine and when I checked network settings of Java they are configured to use browser settings.Are there any other settings required
I would also like to know do I need to forward a port for all P2P applications. I am currently trying JXTA and facing lot of problems to make it work over internet. I did started the thread here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1371549/jxta-p2p-application-over-internet but not getting any answers so I am digging into this to make it work.
