    [RESOLVED][AS2] XML Policy File Woes

    sooo.... I'm trying to connect to my xml socket server over port 1701. Testing locally works fine but when I test from my domain it connects very briefly only to disconnect.

    So after some reading around I found out about the security changes to FP 9.0.xx which require a seperate policy file for XML socket connectionss over port 843.

    I'm now running on my server a simple perl socket server on port 843, it listens only for the policy file request <policy-file-request/> and on receiving returns the following xml over the socket:

    PHP Code:
    <cross-domain-policy>
          <
    site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies='master-only'/>
          <
    allow-access-from domain='*' to-ports='*' />
    </
    cross-domain-policy
    when I test this I can see the my app connecting over port 843 and I see the server recive the policy file request. However when I subsequently connect to my main socket, it disconnects immediately exactly as it did without the policy file.

    As I say I can see the policy file being requested, though I can't see if it's successfully received by flash, I've no idea where to go from here?

    TIA

    is ok! my policy server was broadcasting an initial <newUser id='0' /> welcome packet on connect so this was being received rather than the policy xml, is now fixed!

    I thought you just needed to sit the policy file in the same directory as the .swf

    Is the server and .swf both located on the same server?

    I think that's the old security model, socket connections now require their own cross-domain policy file which the flash player (9 and up) automatiacally looks for:
