I am developing a flash chat website using Stratus. When I did testing, say 10 connections to Stratus per minute, Stratus always blocked my IP for 20 minutes! How come? Does Adobe have limitations on connection to its Stratus service?
Protocol: UDP (Inbound)
Remote Address: 22.214.171.124 : 1935
Local Address: 192.168.1.101 :3105
A remote computer (126.96.36.199) attempted to connect to your computer on a port commonly used by a remote access Trojan
horse. The attempt was blocked.
A computer with the IP address 188.8.131.52 attempted to connect to your computer using Default Block DeepThroat Trojan horse.
Although Stratus is free, I don't want the users of my website to have such an experience. Can Adobe staff give a reasonable explanation? Thanks in advance.
I can speak to half of your question:
My guess is that you have Norton AntiVirus installed. RTMFP will use the UDP protocol. It looks like Norton AV is mistakenly reporting the RTMFP packet as a 'potential intrusion'. It sounds like Norton has a generic block which is misidentifying and disallowing this network activity.
It's a "paranoid" firewall. You'll have to configure it to be less paranoid. It is annoying when AV software blocks legitimate operations.
A google search seems to indicate that this is a common occurence with many applications. I wish I had a more specific recommendation for you, but I do not run Norton AV myself.
Bingo, that's the reason! Thanks, Adamlane!
