Flex accessing WebServices on deployed environment?

Hi,

I have a web service and a flex application. Both are deployed to the same server. The Flex Application tries to call the webservice using:

<mx:WebService id="webService"
            wsdl="http://www.mydomain.com/Services/RoomService.asmx?WSDL"
            result="getRoomInfo_result(event)" >
</mx:WebService>

If I call this code locally it returns the info without any trouble. If I deploy it then it will return with an error:

[RPC Fault faultString="HTTP request error" faultCode="Server.Error.Request" faultDetail="Error: [IOErrorEvent type="ioError" bubbles=false cancelable=false eventPhase=2 text="Error #2032: Stream Error. URL: http://www.mydomain.com/Services/RoomService.asmx"]. URL: http://www.mydomain.com/Services/RoomService.asmx"]

I have tried adding the crossdomain.xml file to the root of the webserver with a * as the allow domain. I also tried to add :
Security.allowDomain("www.mydomain.com");
to the first line of the mxml actionscript tag.

Nothing has worked. Please if someone out there knows how to get around this problem let me know since it is very annoying and I have spent over 3 days now trying to hunt down the reasons.

Hello,
to use web-service your file "crossdomain.xml" must allow custom headers, use file in attachment as example.
<?xml version="1.0" ?> 
<cross-domain-policy>
  <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="all" /> 
  <allow-access-from domain="*" /> 
  <allow-http-request-headers-from domain="*" headers="*" /> 
</cross-domain-policy>

I think my answer is correct, to work with SOAP services Flex need allow rule for headers in crossdomain.xml
