I'm using benschmidtke.com because he has a tutorial on this and a very permissive cross domain policy that should work

This code works from within the Flex IDE - but not when it's loaded on website

i've tried POSTing as weel without luck - any suggestions?

protected function button2_clickHandler(event:MouseEvent):void
flash.system.Security.allowDomain( "http://www.benschmidtke.com" );
flash.system.Security.loadPolicyFile( "http://www.benschmidtke.com/downloads/crossdomain_example/crossdomain.xml" );

var url:String = "http://www.benschmidtke.com";
var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(url);
var loader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();
loader.dataFormat = URLLoaderDataFormat.TEXT;

request.method = URLRequestMethod.GET;
loader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, handleComplete);
