Bugs known:
1: Ms Explorer 4.0 can't set or read cookies.
It can read cookies with the applet parameter "cookie&qout; .
For that to work you need to write all applet tags with Java script.
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
document.write("<APPLET CODE=\"Passwrd3.class\" HEIGHT=\"120\" WIDTH=\"400\" MAYSCRIPT>");
document.write("<PARAM NAME=\"cookie\" VALUE=\"" + document.cookie + "\">");
document.write("<PARAM NAME=\"sound\" VALUE=\"not.au\">");
document.write("<PARAM NAME=\"auto_enter\" VALUE=\"false\">");
document.write("<PARAM NAME=\"cookie_time\" VALUE=\"365\">"); document.write("</APPLET>");
</SCRIPT>
The cookie name is password3
Its value looks like 30+Apr+2000+12%3a04%3a34+GMT%26anonymous%26One+beer+please
The cookie value is url encoded
Its a date followed by the user name and Key/phrase
The format of the date is Wdy, DD-Mon-YYYY HH:MM:SS GMT .
2: The protection given by this applet isn't full proof.
This applet is ment for people that don't have access to any other means.
If the url is known then the applet can easily be bypassed.
Its also wise to put this tag into the page you want to protect.
<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX">
It prevents the page from being indexed by some search engines.

Miscellaneous:
- Option manualy set cookie path
<PARAM NAME="path" VALUE=".....">
With this parameter you can manualy set a path for the cookie.
- Option manualy set the cookie domain
<PARAM NAME="domain" VALUE=".....">
With this one you can set the domain manualy
- the use of the the cab file
Also added is a PassWord3.cab file.
<PARAM NAME="CABBASE" VALUE="PassWord3.cab">
This file is prefered above the class file by Ms Explorer.
But if missing Ms Explorer can also use the class file
Cab files do have a better compression as class files so they load faster
Also this cabfile contains the sound file not.au
-registration tag
There is a tag to remove the unregistered message at the browsers status bar.
It states that is free only for private non-commercial homepages
This is to prevent the unpayed commercial use of the applet.
Here is an example
<PARAM NAME="reg" VALUE="ABCD1234|567890">
-Change username to filename
<PARAM NAME="file_mode" VALUE="true">
file_mode by default equals false
If file_mode is set true then the username is a filename.
The applet doesn't look for the default link.txt file anymore
The link.txt file is the file containing all the links
Instead it looks for a file with a name equal to the user name.
This file is loaded and decrypted by the applet.
The syntax is the same as the link.txt file
username url target
Note that username here of course equals the filename.
The advantage is that each user has its own file.
With this tag not all links are placed in the same link.txt file
