Socket policy file


I’m trying to make a connection to the dreamhost jabber server in FLEX. This all worked until I updated my flash version.

This is a quote from the adobe website:

My question is this;
how would I go about setting up such a policy file on a shared dreamhost account, if this is at all possible.

Thank you,


I am interested in an answer to this question too.

If we want to connect to our jabber server from a web client using flash, we need the server to respond with a flash policy file for the connection to be successful.

Is it possible to add the requested policy file to the jabber server?

DreamHost might be more receptive to requests to add specific services if you’re considering moving your domain onto a PS. You could ask Support if this is possible before switching.
