    XMLSocket "Failed to load policy file" error

    TedMurph123412 Level 1

      I am trying to use an XMLSocket.swf file, and it is not connecting.  Do I need to open up a port on my server?  I am trying to run this on a dedicated remote Windows 2008 server.

       

      Here is the error from FlashFirebug:

       

           OK: Root-level SWF loaded: file:///C|/Users/vcaadmin/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/70vbx4ys.default/exten sions/flashfirebug%40o%2Dminds.com/chrome/content/flashfirebug.swf

       

          OK: Root-level SWF loaded: http://speak-tome.com/flash/XMLSocket.swf

       

          OK: Searching for <allow-access-from> in policy files to authorize data loading from resource at xmlsocket://speak-tome.com:9997 by requestor from http://speak-tome.com/flash/XMLSocket.swf

       

          Error: Failed to load policy file from xmlsocket://speak-tome.com:9997

       

          Error: Request for resource at xmlsocket://speak-tome.com:9997 by requestor from http://speak-tome.com/flash/XMLSocket.swf has failed because the server cannot be reached.

       

       

      My crossdomain.xml is saved to the root of the web directory and looks like:

       

          <?xml version="1.0"?>

          <!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.adobe.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">

          <cross-domain-policy>

          <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="master-only"/>

          <allow-access-from domain="*"/>

          <allow-http-request-headers-from domain="*" headers="SOAPAction"/>

          </cross-domain-policy>

       

      I notice that both ports 843 and 9997 are closed for my domain (speak-tome.com - 72.167.253.16) when I check using a service such as yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports.  Do I need to get these ports open to get the policy file to work?
