with actionscript alone you can only communicate between two flash
movies/projectors on the same machine. unless both players are going to
be playing the game on the same machine, you'll need something like
flash media server (formerly flash comm server) or unity to make it work.

thanks a lot...I'll give them a shot
later edit : should i understand that you have to have flash media server installed on at least one computer??...or is it like the usual server where the server is always online and the other people just connect to it??well...so i guess i wouldn't have many chances of finding a FMS server that i would use...becuase my computer can't act as a server...yet
Use our third party tool FlashJester Jugglor and you will be able to send
command line parameters to the Flash Projector files.

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and
time passes and i still have no idea of what t do with my game whatsoever... i mean, it would be nice if i found a dedicated server which i coudl use(for free of course), because i've run through all these solutions, they seem good but one of the computers has to have that thing installed...thats why i say it would be nice if someone could find a free server, for Oregano, for example, because it is free , and fms streams only flv's....so it looks like i'm in imposibility to send those god damn numbers from one computer to the other...
btw, could i use http or xml instead....i mean send data through http or xml to the target computer, then bang .
