I have an HTML component embedded inside an AIR app. When the
user makes this component visible, the HTML component simply loads
the contents of a URL. During development, I want to load content
from a locally running Web server on port 8080. However, this does
not seem to work. E.g., when I set
does nothing. I verified on the server that the HTML
component doesn't even attempt to connect to the server.
I also verified that this URL is valid and works (using my
local Web browser) as well as via curl. Further, I also tested the
connection via the URLMonitor class from within the AIR app: The
URL is available, according to the URLMonitor.
Any suggestions as to why the content can't be loaded from
the local port 8080 would be appreciated. This is pretty much a
show-stopper for me now, because I can't run the local server on
port 80 during development. FYI, I'm on OS X. Also, in previous
versions of AIR (about a year ago), I didn't have this problem.
