I have successfully been using flashes XML object with
sendAndLoad to communicate with a PHP script on our web server over
The problem is if I do exactly the same just with the PHP
hosted at a HTTPS address, the flash onLoad fails, no data is
received with a httpStatus code of 0.
I have spent sometime googling the issue and believe it may
have something to do with flashes security.allowInsecureDomain,
allowDomain, or loadPolicyFile methods, but cannot work out how
these might be used from an SWF running in director.
I'm pretty sure a Director projector can't communicate over
Shockwave can, since it "piggybacks" on the browser's
ability. Hence the
existence of SecureNet xtra from INM:
However, I think you'll have to
route your data sending and receiving through Director rather
the built-in Flash method.
Alternatively, it might work from an externally linked swf
one fully imported, so you might try this.
