Network Files Need to Access Local Files - Macromedia Flash Player

Hi all, I have a web application that will be accessing files from both the network (our servers) and the local computer. It worked great on FP 8 but there are new secuirty "features" in FP 9 that prevent this. I have read in many white papers about a FlashPlayerTrust directory and .cfg files that will allow this network to local file access. Has anyone used this? Thanks, Rolando...

    Default Network Files Need to Access Local Files

    Hi all,
    I have a web application that will be accessing files from both the network
    (our servers) and the local computer. It worked great on FP 8 but there are
    new secuirty "features" in FP 9 that prevent this. I have read in many white
    papers about a FlashPlayerTrust directory and .cfg files that will allow this
    network to local file access. Has anyone used this?

    Default Re: Network Files Need to Access Local Files

    I think it may be a browser security setting. I have been working quite a bit
    around this area lately and found that local files cannot be accessed via a
    web-based application (not neccessarily Flash), if that app. is online. If you
    use the application offline, running from the local computer, then the local
    files can be accessed.

    I am quite sure (but am not certain, as I am at home at present with no
    network) that network files should work in the way you require. I know they
    certainly will if you go via a mapped network drive but will need to
    double-check on straight access through the network - I'm sure it does though.

    Note: any absolute file location using HTTP will work, or even files with a
    relative file location string on the same domain as the web page trying to
    access the file.

    It's just those bloomin' local file that are attempted access from a remote
    location that is the problem.
