We are working on an online game that needs to access a http web service. Since the webplayer cannot work with standard HttpRequests, I have to use sockets. I’ve purchased uniweb to make things easier for me.
For sockets I need to serve a crossdomain policy file on port 843 on my server. The problem is that this port is blocked at my company.
I could ask the IT personel to open this port, but actually that only solves the problem for me, and not for all future players of my game that are behind a firewall which blocks port 843. Since this is a game intended to be played at schools, that would be almost all of my future players.
So what do I do? How to solve this problem? Using another port is not a solution, the same problem applies.
Thanks for any help.
