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:
<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.adobe.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">
<allow-http-request-headers-from domain="*" headers="SOAPAction"/>
I notice that both ports 843 and 9997 are closed for my domain (speak-tome.com - 22.214.171.124) 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?
