I'm pretty new to Actionscript and I'm trying to find ways to
have some means of communication between a server and a flash
client (written using Actionscript 2.0). The flash client needs to
be able to handle unsolicited requests from the server. I can do
this with XMLSocket, but I can't find ways to secure the channel
without installing additional components (stunnel) on the client
machine. I can also do this with Actionscript 3.0 using RTMPS
(using red5) as the server. However, Actionscript 2.0 does not
appear to have full support for RTMP. The NetConnection class in
Actionscript 2.0 is a lot skinnier than in Actionscript 2.0.
Any thoughts on this? Is there anyway I can have a
bidirectional secured persistent channel between a flash client
(Actionscript 2.0) and a server?
