[Dxspider-support] java Web Console under Windows

My linux box is acting up and was planning to move my dxcluster to my
Windows server.

I have the system working on Windows but I cannot seem to get the java web
server to work.

I am using apache on a windows 2000 server box.

When I connect to the web cluster with the cgi-bin address, the webpage
comes up to enter your callsign.  You enter the callsign then it goes into

load: class spiderclient.class not found.
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: spiderclient.class
	at sun.plugin2.applet.Applet2ClassLoader.findClass(Unknown Source)
	at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(Unknown Source)

	at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)
	... 7 more
Exception: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: spiderclient.class

This is the code from the spider.cgi file

    # Callsign is set - print the whole <APPLET> stuff....
    # print("Callsign is $call<BR>\n") ;

    print("<CENTER>\n") ;
    print("    <APPLET CODE=\"spiderclient.class\" CODEBASE=\"/cluster/\"
width=800 height=130>\n") ;
    print("        <PARAM NAME=\"CALL\" VALUE=\"$call\">\n") ;
    print("        <PARAM NAME=\"PASSWORD\" VALUE=\"$password\">\n") ;
    print("        <PARAM NAME=\"HOSTNAME\" VALUE=\"$HOSTNAME\">\n") ;
    print("        <PARAM NAME=\"PORT\" VALUE=\"$PORT\">\n") ;
    print("        <PARAM NAME=\"NODECALL\" VALUE=\"$NODECALL\">\n") ;
    print("    </APPLET>\n") ;
    print("</CENTER>\n") ;

I have the contents of the spiderweb files in the cluster directory which is
in the document root and have setup the virtual directory in apache.
I must be missing a step somewhere.

Thanks in advance...
