OS: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.8 (Tikanga) FireFox version: FireFox ESR, 17.0.3, x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu java version verification by java.com: Your Java version: Version 6 Update 45

Problem: SSL Network Extender Applet crashes on FireFox. I guess the most interesting part of the stack trace as it seen in the Java Console is:

02/06/2014 04:08:11[SNXNetMode] Checking communication to SNX Network Mode 02/06/2014 04:08:11[Component] Trying to create socket to network: Connecting with proxy=DIRECT 02/06/2014 04:08:11[Component] Could not connect java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.socketConnect(Native Method) at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.doConnect(PlainSocketImpl .java:351)

Any idea why it is trying to connect to the local machine and fail eventually?
