    Secure RTMP and Linux

      Maybe someone can help me solve this mystery.

      I have successfully used RTMP on Windows XP and RHEL 4 with Flex 2.0.1 FDS and integrated JRun, Adobe FlashPlayer 9,0,28,0

      The application works with a self-signed certificate using HTTPS and RTMPS on Windows XP with the client app running in IE 7 and Firefox 1.5. The server certificates are signed with a trusted root certificate, which in turn is in the certificate stores.

      If I build the application on Linux with the same RTMPS configuration as on Windows XP (except the difference in server names), HTTPS on Linux works fine, but I have no joy with RTMPS.

      <channel-definition id="my-rtmps" class="mx.messaging.channels.SecureRTMPChannel">
      <endpoint uri="rtmps://{server.name}:2099" class="flex.messaging.endpoints.SecureRTMPEndpoint"/>

      The following log example lists what happens with the first FDS fill operation that the client performs.
      There are NO error or warning entries in the client or server logs - the logs end as indicated.

      Client Log:

      (the same trace on XP continues as follows)

      <==== Trace ends here ====

      The server log shows that the Flex session is created, RTMPS worker threads are created, but then any messaging just stops. There is no response to the fill operation as you can see in both logs.

      Firewalls are out of the picture - client and server are connected via OpenVPN, Windows Firewall on the client is off. As mentioned already, the exact same setup (with the same VPN) works when using RTMP instead of RTMPS.

      Just in case I've tried several different ports for RTMPS: 2099, 2039, 9105 and probably some others I don't recall anymore.

      Any and all help would be appreciated - I'm out of ideas.
