9,0,124 policy file error - Macromedia Flash Player

I switched to using 9,0,124 from 9,0,115 and I'm now unable to access my socket. This is the error in my log: Warning: Ignoring invalid <allow-access-from> tag for domain 'games.myspace.com' in policy file at xmlsocket:// Which does not make any sense since 9,0,115 had no problems with the tag. I even captured the packets to see what was going on. Which shows that the policy file sent to the client is okay. Attach Code <policy-file-request/>.<cross-domain-policy> <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="master-only"/> <allow-access-from domain="games.myspace.com" to-ports="14002, 12010"/> </cross-domain-policy>...

    Default 9,0,124 policy file error

    I switched to using 9,0,124 from 9,0,115 and I'm now unable to access my socket.

    This is the error in my log:
    Warning: Ignoring invalid <allow-access-from> tag for domain
    'games.myspace.com' in policy file at xmlsocket://

    Which does not make any sense since 9,0,115 had no problems with the tag. I
    even captured the packets to see what was going on. Which shows that the policy
    file sent to the client is okay.

    Attach Code
    <policy-file-request/>.<cross-domain-policy>
    <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="master-only"/>
    <allow-access-from domain="games.myspace.com" to-ports="14002, 12010"/>
    </cross-domain-policy>

    FrostFire... have you read the 9.0.124.0 changes docs?

    This article on socket master policy files just came out last week:
    http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplayer/articles/socket_policy_files.html

    And it points back to the more general article on all the security changes
    begun in 9.0.115.0.

    So the above is your master policy file. Are you serving that on port 843?

    It's also possible that 9.0.115.0 DID have problems. It would have thrown
    errors to the log (because that was phase 1 of the change, to throw errors only
    to the policyfilelog). Phase 2 introduced in 9.0.124.0 blocks the connection
    entirely.

    I don't see anything wrong with the syntax. However, we've been working on
    two cases in which the socket policy file read is -very- sensitive to the null
    bytes at the end of the file. We're not sure why yet, but I'd bet this is
    what's effecting you.

    Open a support case and reply back with the case number and we'll get you on
    the list of people to talk to about what's going on with this...

    It is my master policy file.
    It is hosted on port 843.
    The SWF file is loaded from the same domain as the policy file.

    9,0,115 did not have this problem. When I look in the policyfiles.txt log 115
    shows that it read the file and got the permissions. 124 can't read the domain
    properly.

    I would bet that it is the problem with null values at the end of the file,
    that seems most logical.

    When is a new build going to come out with a fix to the reader so that it
    doesn't bomb on this?

    We don't yet know exactly what the cause is. It would be helpful if you could open a support case. Also, what is your socket server written in?

    Case #0180150989

    Socket server is written in Java.

    I just checked up on the case and it doesn't seem to be going well. I'm going
    to ask a higher level tech to take it over.. I should be in a position to have
    some testing done on our end sometime this week which might help...

    Not going well? At least a tech got back to me, which is better Facebook. He
    did just tell me to RTFM and closed the case, which I think isn't as good as
    Facebook. Ah well, maybe the next guy will be better.

    Thanks for checking in on this.

    Well the lower level techs wouldn't generally have any knowledge of socket
    server stuff, and this isn't really a solvable issue yet. So we're hoping your
    case will help us figure this out in a way we can communicate to all..
