Flex not accepting security policy

i'm trying to use binary sockets in a Flex based project.  I have a socket server located at port 843 and the actual server application using port 6274.  Both the socket server and the application server are sending the following response when they receive "<policy-file-request/>":

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-adobePolicy SYSTEM "http://www.adobe.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-adobePolicy.dtd">
<cross-domain-adobePolicy>
<allow-access-from domain="*" to-ports="*" />
</cross-domain-adobePolicy>

This response is terminated with a chr(0).  Running both servers in the debug mode, I can see the request being made by the .swf and the policy file returned, but I keep getting the security error event inside by .swf file.  What am I doing wrong?

My bad... I did a global search and replace while writing the program and changed </cross-domain-policy> to </cross-domain-adobePolicy>.   After making the change all works fine.
