I was trying to run topcoder arena applet using proxy. I install latest JDK and iced-tea. When I try to run using:

javaws ContestAppletProd.jnlp

I'm getting:

File cannot be launched because offline-allowed tag not specified and system currently offline.

I tried setting proxy in icedtea applet but still getting the same error.

Configure proxy settings in icedtea control panel. Search for icedtea in dash to get the control panel, then set the proxy settings in network category on left.
