    Collaborative Environment Setup

    Level 7
      Long story short, I (CF/HTMLer) have a Denver based Flex coder to build a Flash
      version of my prototype HTML site which is hosted on an IIS/CF/MySql machine
      here in Vancouver.

      In struggling with flash security settings (and meta policy warnings), by
      saving the following crossdomain.xml in the wwwroot folder of the DevServer (it
      doesn't work when in the wwwroot/ProjectName folder) I can allow him to call an
      existing cfc and retrieve data.

      <?xml version="1.0"?>
      <!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM
      " http://www.adobe.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">

      <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="master-only"/>
      <allow-access-from domain="*"/>

      However, if I change the "*" above to literally any (of the many other URL's
      and domain names we've tried) then his flex project properties of
      root folder: \\PC3\coldfusion8\wwwroot
      root URL: http://PC3:8500/

      are reported back with "Connection to ... halted - not permitted from

      In so far as we have been stumbling around essentially in the dark for days
      now, is there anyone who can point us to how he might be able to develop (Flex)
      within his network/server but to call the cfc's on my server (ie specifying a
      domain in the crossdomain.xml that is in this case not a domain but rather the
      local networked named server "PC3" ) ?

      Frankly I am entirely lost with practically all flex/flash settings so thanks
      in advance, especially if I am missing something simple here . . .
