hi -

are you saying that the file to read variables in from is called "url to cgi"? just like that? it doesn't sound like a proper data source.

ie and netscape should behave identically in any case. mac or pc?

also, are you sure that both browsers are using the flash 4 player?

if you have a live page with this sample to look at, it may be helpful as well.

vars=SEND is invalid, you must use GET or POST in place of the SEND.

68k, by "url to cgi" I am assuming he will replace that with the URL to the CGI script.

In either case, the Flash player is an ActiveX control. Little, if anything, is actually handled by the browser itself. Flash will behave the same in any browser as long as they are using the same flash player (as 68k noted).

If you're just curious, there isn't anything to worry about here. Data is sent flawlessly across platforms and browsers as long as you don't use any browser-specific details in the CGI script.

I hope this helps,
-Dan

P.S. Proper syntax for Load Variables:
Load Variables ("script.cgi", 0, vars=POST)
