Hi Tom,

This seems like the same issue that was discussed here.

Are you using a proxy server?  The VoxForge SpeechSubmission app uses Postlet code on the client and server end... they say that if you are behind a proxy server, you should do this:

For users behind a proxy server, you need to ensure that Java is correctly set up on your machine.

To set the proxy server for your JRE, assuming you're using the SUN JRE, then do the following steps:

  • Open the JRE control panel. On windows this is located in the system control panel under Java (Start -> Control Panel -> Java - If this isn't visible, ensure you're using "Classic View", and not "Category View"). ...
  • Click the "General" tab, and then click the "Network Settings..." button. Enter the proxy settings as stipulated by your local systenm administrator
  • Restart your web browser.
  • Postlet will now use the proxy connection settings that you have specified.
