    rtmps over port 80 not being tried?


      My team is deploying an SSL-only application. Port 443 is reserved for https. I am experimenting with port 80 as a replacement port for rtmps. But it seems not to work. I am using url "rtmps://host:80/app" to no avail. Port 81 works, also does port 443, but both are not ideal. 81 is not a common port to be open at firewalls and 443 is already used.


      I watched the ports on the client machine with lsof which tells me the connection attempts. Ports 81 and 443 are tried by the flash player, but not port 80.


      I am using Flash Builder 4 and Flex 4.5. Code:


      var nc:NetConnection = new NetConnection();

      nc.addEventListener(NetStatusEvent.NET_STATUS, function(e:NetStatusEvent):void {









      but it seems the Flash Player did not even try to connect. Does someone else also have this behavior? rtmps over port 80 not being tried? If yes, is there a workaround (like setting up a specific NetLoader)?
