Description
FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
"b:\lang\java\jre\x64\v1.7\u01\bin\java.exe" -version

java version "1.7.0_01"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_01-b08)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 21.1-b02, mixed mode)

Working java internet connection:

"b:\lang\java\jre\x64\v1.6\u29\bin\java.exe" -version

java version "1.6.0_29"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_29-b11)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.4-b02, mixed mode)

ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
Test with:  Lobo Browser, v0.98 = http://lobobrowser.org

Works:

  b:\lang\java\jre\x64\v1.6\u29\bin\java.exe -jar  c:\.bin\media\lobo\v00.98\lobo.jar

Fails:

  b:\lang\java\jre\x64\v1.7\u01\bin\java.exe -jar c:\.bin\media\lobo\v00.98\lobo.jar


A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Several programs time-out connecting to the internet with JRE 1.7.  Works with Java 1.6 u29.

Specific command lines are given above.  Several programs aren't connecting with the 1.7 run-time:  netbeans, eclipse, jvisualvm.  I'd actually like to see a small internet connect example like a curl or something in the JDK for checking this sort of connectivity issues.

I selected the Lobo browser as a test vehicle because it is independently built and not part of the distribution (unlike jvisualvm in the JDK).






REGRESSION.  Last worked in version 6u29

STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
Windows 7.64-bit

Install Java 7 platform jre
Install Java 6 platform jre

Install the Lobo browser



EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
Run the Lobo browser by:

Use java 7
-- Run the jar file or
-- Use the command given above.

Connect to http://google.com


ACTUAL -
Will not connect to the internet.

Run again with Java 6
 -- run Lobo and
 -- connect to http://google.com
 -- Works.

No other changes, same system set-up just two different command lines and JRE versions.

ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
Connection Time out error on other packages.

REPRODUCIBILITY :
This bug can be reproduced always.

CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
Run tools (e.g. netbeans) with Java6 until this is resolved.

EVALUATION

I'm not sure what this bug is requesting. Is it requesting a tool for checking network connectivity of reporting an actual issue?
