Hi,

I have a standard weborb setup on my test server (dbtest).
My Flex app calls a server side asp.net class to go "get data".
This works fine running the Flex app from my local FlexBuilder calling the remote service on dbtest.
It also works if I browse to the debug build of the app on the remote server (http://dbtest.office.ddl/weborb30/PrintAimsCharting-debug/PrintAimsCharting.html#)

However, the app actually has to be embedded within an existing .NET website (so the PrintAimsCharting.swf will actually be embedded into the page http://dbtest.office.ddl/portal/applications/tools/AimsGraphing.aspx). In other words I now have a copy of PrintAimsCharting.swf (and associated html page) in dbtest's c:/Inetpub/wwwroot/portal/applications/tools directory.
This means I have a Flex app embedded into a .NET site in c:/Inetpub/wwwroot/portal calling a weborb server side object in c:/Inetpub/wwwroot/weborb30.

However, if I now run the Flex app from either the .NET application (portal) or directly (as http://dbtest.office.ddl/portal/applications/tools/PrintAimsCharting.html#) I get the famous "Error: Send Failed" message.

All help I've seen so far talks about changing the server-config.xml files to repoint to a specific instance of weborb.aspx, but in my case weborb.aspx is where it usually is.

HELP!
