You can use the Multiuser xtra (as opposed to the server - and even if
you use the server you will still need to use the xtra to communicate
Alternatively you could have a web server in between both machines and
repeatedly hit them with GET or POST to see whether there are any new
messages, but using the xtra is a better solution.
Thank You very much, that's all what I wanted to know :)
The Multiuser xtra can be used to connect two or more Director projector applications or shockwave applications directly without going through a server. I have done it using Director MX 2004. A big problem with doing that is you have to set up port forwarding if you are behind a firewall or router.
I think you can also use the Flash Multimedia Server to make voice/video chat connections, but that requires the server.
