Flash Player 6 getting XML over SSL fails, HTTP works?!
Posted on 2007-10-10
I have a SWF that we are loading on a windows box via flash player directly (not using a web browser). It needs to hit a PHP page on our corporate site to retrieve a list of XML results and we want to do it over SSL.
The problem is that when the method is SSL, it returns nothing (fails). If we switch the method to HTTP it works just fine. The fact that it works over HTTP tells me that it isn't a crossdomain.xml issue and since its Flash Player 6 it can't be an issue with the allowDomain attribute (which we have tried anyway).
Now, I have installed an Intermediate CA for the verisign cert, and that fixed browsers like safari...etc but not the flash itself.
Have any of you experts dealt with pulling data from an SSL domain and any problems that might be presented as a result of that?
