Solving the Soap Cross Domain Problem for Flash Player 9,0,124,0

Recently, the Flash Player update (9,0,124,0) crippled one of our clients’ sites by stopping the Flash-based application from making Soap calls to a web server other than the one that served the SWF.

Despite consulting various internet resources, we were unable to find any solution that worked. Wade Arnold’s blog entry came the closest, but unfortunately included a tag that stopped even previous versions of the Flash Player from working.

Flash Player 9 Update 3 and the Socket Policy File
