    socket

    Hi,

    Has anybody had any success in using AS3 socket, I have various ways of connecting and sometimes it does but closes automatically after a few seconds, I also get invalid socket after closing when trying to send message.

    I have tried with numerous ports and various combinations of the local, site, external etc ect.

    I never get the connected message whilst online

    PHP Code:
    import flash.net.Socket;
    import flash.events.*;

    var 
    socket:Socket = new Socket();
    var 
    port:Number80;

    var 
    site:String "fruitbeard.net";
    var 
    local:String "127.0.0.1";
    var 
    external:String "176.24.181.163";

    Security.allowDomain("*");
    Security.allowInsecureDomain("*");
    Security.loadPolicyFile("http://" site "/crossdomain.xml");
    //Security.loadPolicyFile("xmlsocket://" + local + ":" + String(port));

    socket.addEventListener(Event.CONNECTonConnect);
    socket.addEventListener(Event.CLOSEonClose);
    socket.addEventListener(IOErrorEvent.IO_ERRORonError);
    socket.addEventListener(ProgressEvent.SOCKET_DATAonResponse);
    socket.addEventListener(SecurityErrorEvent.SECURITY_ERRORonSecError);

    //socket.connect(site, port);
    //socket.connect(local, port);
    //socket.connect(external, port);
    socket.connect(siteport);

    function 
    onConnect(e:Event):void
    {
        
    //socket.writeUTFBytes("GET / HTTP/1.1\n");
        //socket.writeUTFBytes("Host: fruitbeard.net\n");
        //socket.writeUTFBytes("\n");
        
    socket.flush();
        
    chatArea.htmlText += "<u>Connected</u>\n<font color='#0066ff'>" e;
    }

    function 
    onClose(e:Event):void
    {
        
    socket.flush();
        
    socket.close();
        
        
    chatArea.htmlText += "<u><font color='#ff5500'>Disconnected</font></u>\n<font color='#0066ff'>" e;
    }

    function 
    onError(e:IOErrorEvent):void
    {
        
    trace("IO Error: " e);
        
    chatArea.htmlText += "<u><font color='#ff5500'>IO Error</font></u>\n<font color='#0066ff'>" e;
    }

    function 
    onSecError(e:SecurityErrorEvent):void
    {
        
    trace("Security Error: " e);
        
    chatArea.htmlText += "<u><font color='#ff5500'>Security Error</font></u>\n<font color='#0066ff'>" e;
    }

    function 
    onResponse(e:ProgressEvent):void
    {
        if (
    socket.bytesAvailable 0)
        {
            var 
    readMessage:String String(socket.readUTFBytes(socket.bytesAvailable));
            
    //trace(readMessage);
            
    chatArea.htmlText += readMessage;
            
    socket.flush();
            
    readMessage "";
        }
    }

    sendButt.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICKsendBytes);
    sendButt.buttonMode true;

    function 
    sendBytes(e:MouseEvent)
    {
        if (
    pMessage.text != "")
        {
            var 
    sendMessage:String pMessage.text "\r\n";
            
    //trace(sendMessage);
            
    socket.writeUTFBytes(sendMessage);
            
    sendMessage "";
            
    pMessage.text "";
        }

    and my crossdomain which is on the server is simply
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.adobe.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">
    <cross-domain-policy>
       <allow-access-from domain="*" to-ports="*" />
    </cross-domain-policy>
    any solutions most welcomed

    I beleive its probably the crossdomain / policy file, but I'm stuck as the errors whilst online are always 2048 security

    I was playing with Socket and ServerSocket last year and achieve some cool things. But I prefer Yahoo's PlayerIO. Have you tested playerio already?

    Regards
    Already mastering AS3. It was so fun. Now into Javascript and PHP and all its libraries

    Hi,

    My problem is my web host does not allow port binding with the current plan I have.
    I don't really actually need it and it was just for experiment, I do use smartfox on occasion.

    Thanks for the inputus.
