I'm trying to get my Flex application to connect via socket to my server, so I need to set up a socket policy file server. It seems like there are various roll-your-own implementations floating around out there, but is there any kind of standard or best practice with what to use? Some google searches turned up nothing, so I'd be curious to hear the pros and cons of what other people have tried.
As an aside, it seems strange that Adobe imposes this restriction but doesn't make something readily available to support it.
Have you still found this to be true? We're attempting socket connections via 443 but still need to make a policy request @843, which might be blocked.
