Flash Communication Server Firewall Port Test

Flash Comm Server Port Test

This test determines which ports the Macromedia Flash Player is able to connect through to the Flash Communication Server located at Macromedia.com. All users should pass this port test because HTTP Tunneling technology has been implemented on the server. If you have success on any of the tests, that means you will be able to successfully connect to and view Flash Communication Server content from the computer network you are connected to.

If all the tests fail, then you have failed the overall test. This means you will not be able to successfully connect to and view Flash Communication Server content from the computer network you are on.

Possible causes of overall failure:
  • Macromedia Flash Player is out of date. Upgrade to Flash Player 6,0,65,0 or higher.
  • You may be behind a "stateful inspection" firewall. These firewalls will drop socket connections if they detect non-HTTP traffic such as the Real-Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) traffic used by the Flash Communication Server. More information on firewalls can be found at Macromedia's Ports, Firewalls, and Macromedia Flash Communication Server (TechNote 16499).
  • You are using a proxy server to connect to the Internet. Most proxy servers only negotiate HTTP traffic. For this reason, attempts to connect to the Macromedia Flash Communication Server using RTMP through a proxy server fail.
