ajax question

Can I use as the url for a ajax connection and how about sportsnetwork.com/NHL.XML I'm in the Domain of sportsnetwork can I use this for data retrieve or am I going to run into cross domain policy issue.
But I maybe wrong but if I use a IP Address and retrieve a xml file why would I get cross domain isn't that a way to beat cross domain I wrote code but I'm not getting two team name as a test. here is code.

<!doctype html>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.2/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

var xmlPath = ''

        type: "GET",
        url:  xmlPath,
        dataType: "xml",
        success: function(data) {
            var d = $(data);
			var Play = d.find('message');
                var listing=$(listing);
				var awayteam = team.attr("awayteam");
                var hometeam = team.attr('hometeam'); 


<table width="350" border="0">
    <td><div align="center" id="txthometeam">Hometeam</div></td>
    <td><div align="center" id="txtawayteam">Awayteam</div></td>

As long the domain you are calling by ajax is exactly the same (protocol and address) then there is no problem, if it isn't then you can use Jsonp or a proxy.
IP addresses are not the same as the domain

So IP Address should work right? If so

is this not right cause if I can connect the world will open up for me. There is so much I can retrieve it will be unbelievable.

Tell me what is wrong with this

var xmlPath = ''
should it be

var xmlPath = '' but neither one worked for me. Please let me know. cause this is what I get

Error: 0 - [Exception... "Access to restricted URI denied"  code: "1012" nsresult: "0x805303f4 (NS_ERROR_DOM_BAD_URI)"
Are you loading your webpage using that IP address as well?
Is that IP address mapped to one single domain as a default?

If in the address bar you have http://www.mydomain.com then you have to use http://www.mydomain.com for your ajax call.

No the IP Address is remote on a remote computer from the webpage

The IP Address is in  a single domain but when you say is it mapped what do you mean like is it a domain controller or is IP Address have a dns domain name  yes it's name on network is tsnsql22
Do you have control over that domain/IP?

You can either...
Add an header to that IP
Access-Control-Allow-Methods: GET, POST, OPTIONS
Access-Control-Allow-Credentials: true
Access-Control-Allow-Origin: http://www.yourdomain.com
Access-Control-Allow-Headers: Content-Type, *

HOw you do this depends on your programming language/server.

Use Jsonp

Or use a proxy - this means you call a page on your own server which in turns calls the above IP for its data and then passes that data back to your page.
