Have seen this problem's description elsewhere but the solutions do not work for me.

There is nothing happenning in the apache log therefore guess it is some sort of security violation but could be wrong.

Have tried System.security.allowDomain ("*"); to no avail.

Code looks something like this ..

public function sendEmail () {
            var cgiURL = "http://www.zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.com/cgi-sys/FormMail.cgi";
            trace ("x" + this.dataOut.contentType);
            this.dataIn.onLoad = function (success:Boolean):Void  {
                  trace ("no Error loading content.");
            };
            this.dataIn.onData = function (src:String) {
                        // Just hijacking this text field to display the results ..
                  _root.emailH.page.addressArea.text = src;
            };
            this.dataIn.onHTTPStatus = function (httpStatus:Number) {
                  this.httpStatus = httpStatus;
                  if (httpStatus < 100) {
                        this.httpStatusType = "flashError";
                  } else if (httpStatus < 200) {
                        this.httpStatusType = "informational";
                  } else if (httpStatus < 300) {
                        this.httpStatusType = "successful";
                  } else if (httpStatus < 400) {
                        this.httpStatusType = "redirection";
                  } else if (httpStatus < 500) {
                        this.httpStatusType = "clientError";
                  } else if (httpStatus < 600) {
                        this.httpStatusType = "serverError";
                  }
                       // Just hijacking this to display the results ..
                  _root.emailH.page.messageArea.text = this.httpStatus + " - " + this.httpStatusType;
            };
            this.setDataOut ();
            this.dataOut.contentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded";
            this.dataOut.sendAndLoad (cgiURL, this.dataIn, "POST");
            trace ("x" + this.dataOut.contentType);
      }  

It works from flash test movie but not from any browser and  returns no status codes (or text) ..

Thanks, ChrisColeman.

Ok, I solved it myself ..

The local sandbox allowed cross domain access to the cgi script.

The local server did not.

When installed in the same domain as the cgi script, all works ok ..

Many Thanks,

ChrisColeman.
