Can browser install the Java plug-in directly/completely from my site.

I know I can copy the Java 1.5 JRE (.EXE) installation file to my site and get the browser to download it from there but the .CAB package pulls stuff back down from the Sun site.

I also have problems with the .EXE (JRE installation) that requires administrator privilege to run (see other topic) and maybe the .CAB doesn't have this.

The access to Sun site would be OK but many users are behind the firewall and can only get to that site via the web proxy, which requires proxy authentication and not every one has access, etc. etc.

It's just easier to use Java Applets if everything can be accessed from the Intranet site without links back to sun.

Thanks for any help.
