I'm running Kubuntu 12.04 with version of adobe-flashplugin.  On a number of web pages such as n-military.html I consistently get that VE_FMS_CONNECT_FAILED error.  Retrying the site does not help.  I've tried this in Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and konqueror.  I believe that bug 3117684 is related to this error, but it's listed as CLOSED. 


In the past I did not see this error.  I think it started about three months ago.


How can I get past this?

    This is usually caused by network issues (firewall rules, etc.)  I'll forward this to one of our linux guys, but have you reproduced this on any other system?  Our Linux development stopped a while back with only security updates occurring now.  Google has taken the lead here and is developing Flash for Chrome on Linux.
