Help Bolts a bit more...
show user profile  Bolteon
Hey everyone,

So after realizing that using Java Applets for our rendering service would likely be a bad idea in the long run (Chrome has already turned off Java compatibility out of the box and it seems that FF is going to do the same) I realized I would likely need to get my head wrapped around writting my own EXE to do the functions of the Java Applet I wrote, were doing.

So after a whole day, I've got something that I would appreciate people just testing out.

It's supposed to spit out your local IP address and ask for elevation...

If you guys run into any issues, please feel free to write back. OS and other details are helpful in that case but hopefully this stupid simple program works without issue.

FF 37.0.2

It spits out my IP address, though it didn't ask for elevation.

I'm not sure. Just checked all my settings, couldn't work it out. Software noob.

Well, I just had a visit from the head of IT here...

Clicking on the link produced a popup on my machine and the following:

I had that too, but ignored since the file was trying to find my IP address, as Bolts said it was going to do. Stuff like that'll make spyware go bing.

Same as herfst1.
Spits my local network ip and thats all.

What is this all about? I mean the program you are creating.


My kaspersky didn't even move on this .exe

It's a replacement for the Java Applet that we were using on this:


Malware shouldn't pick it up, we're only querying your network address, nothing crazy.

Just sent an email to the people at Sophos about the false positive. We'll see what they say back.

This will likely put a lot of renderfarms out of business.

So, less renderfarms. ;-)
