This has everything to do with the applet security model, which doesn't allow programs to make TCP/IP connections to any machine other than the machine the applet was downloaded from. If you downloaded the applet from 'localhost', the JDBC driver can only connect to 'localhost'. If you downloaded it from the IP of your machine, the JDBC driver can only connect to the IP of your machine. If you need to work around this, you need to investigate signed applets, which is beyond the scope of something I can tell you how to do in a forum such as this (search google for 'java signed applets').
