I'm stumped - cross domain (type) issue

we've setup a test server to try and simulate a problem

assume 3 files
file a i have no control over and it sits in

it loads file b - file b loads file c
but i pass file c to file b via an absolute path - but instead of using i'm using the domainname  - so let's say mydomain

(i'm simulating an environment here - so dont' want to change this)

what would be the cross domain scenario here.
assume for testing i'm puttin allow domain * on everything

it's the same machine

my file refuses to load.
blank friday moment.

The domain name needs to be exactly as it is in the crossdomain file.  True, localhost or mydomain may well resolve to, but Flash doesn't care - it must be the same, and the same for any sub-domains.

Hey proactivation - as mentioned, currrently all my allowDomains are set to wildcard * - I'm trying to find a solution to get flash to not care if the file says localhost or mydomain or

what i've opted to is the follows:

domainA - which I have no control over will either use a machine name or IP to load a file on domainB

swf in domainA loads one of my files in domainB, my file then loads other files, connects to webservices, sockets etc - i've added an extra parameter in my config file, to pull the currently location, strip that out and set that as my "domain" - I make sure I load all my files into my security domain - and the workaround - faking the actual calling domain - works.

I have no doubt this is not the right way to go about it - but for the sake of this particular project - i'm happy with the result - and since there was nothing else forthcoming in ideas, i'm going to close this.

I wasn't getting any useful responses, so I created a work around which I've detailed.
