          You betcha. FlashComm (Flash Communciation Server) is now called Flash
          Media Server, but it's not your only choice. If the top of my head, I can
          think of Unity ...

          http://www.moock.org/unity/index.html

          ... which is much less expensive, and Oregano Multiuser Server ...

          http://www.oregano-server.org/

          ... which is free.

            Hi David, thank a lot for your concern, i did check the links and they are
            very cool, but...
            I'd was meanning if it possible to create an "awaitting connection" (at
            least one)
            directly from the .swf file,
            Thank again

              I'm afraid I don't know what you mean by "create an 'awaiting
              connection'," other than that you wish to create a peer-to-peer connection.
              Any of the three multiuser servers mentioned will allow you to create chat
              applications, peer-to-peer games, etc. I should imagine that, while waiting
              to confirm a connection with another user, the SWF could be programmed to
              state "awaiting connection."
