[JDEV] RFC: cross-domain Flash support
lists at solarismedia.co.uk

Out of interest how are you loading the shim across domains? As far as
I'm aware, not only does the Flash player not allow socket connections
across domains, but it also prevents the loading of data or SWFs.
By the way, has anyone had any luck with running Jabber on multiple
ports, so that a Flash client behind a firewall can try several options
to connect? Or has anyone tried any other methods so that users behind
firewalls can use a Flash client?
