I have one flash file that will not work inside my network. When I embed the file in html it opens but when I press play it goes blank. I can embed another flash file and it will auto start. If I take the flash file that does not work and put it on another server outside my network it works.

If I put the url http://www.defelements.com/Yantis/sample.swf in my browser it works but if I embed that in html on my server it will not play.

note: that url is on another server, that is not my server.

As you explained the 2 files are working outside the network, I can see them from here too. So the problem is probably on the firewall port.

try opening port: tcp / 5222 and try again.

hope that helps

I copied the code to another server at my home and I do not have port 52222 open and it works.

I can embed other flash files and it works on my network.
The flash file that does not work has two files involved to run a .swf and a .flv
the swf  has code embed in it that calles the flv file

are you calling the flv locally or remotely(url).
The server might not have the MIME type for FLV
