Recently, I've noticed that Flash Remoting data is blocked by Mozilla-based browsers if they're connected to the Internet using an HTTP proxy server. My satellite broadband provider uses a proxy server, and so does AOL. I suspect that other major ISPs, like Earthlink and Road Runner, do as well. I Googled the subject but was only able to find one question in the macromedia.flash.flash_remoting newsgroup.
Of course, the workaround is to use Internet Explorer or disable the HTTP proxy in Netscape or Firefox, but that degrades the browser's performance. Currently, Macromedia Flex and Flash Communication Server both offer HTTP tunneling solutions to overcome this (see the following FlashComm article on DevNet).
Has anyone discovered a solution to this for Flash Remoting?
