Flash Policy setup instructions When you can't connect to a server and the client shows a security sandbox violation message, the server the IRCd is running on does not allow connections from a Flash client. Due to the socket security policy Adobe introduced with Flash Player 9,0,124 you are forced to have a daemon that delivers a crossdomain.xml to allow establishing a connection. It is not a restriction of lightIRC, but one of Adobe Flash! Install Flash Policy without root access: wget http://www.lightirc.com/assets/policy/flashpolicyd.zip unzip flashpolicyd.zip cd flashpolicyd chmod a+x flashpolicyd.rb ./flashpolicyd.rb --xml flashpolicy.xml --logfile flashpolicyd.log --port 9009 Change port 9009 to any port that you prefer from 1024 to 60000. Verify that flashpolicyd is running: tail flashpolicyd.log If you see this message the flashpolicyd started succesfully: "Starting server on port xxx in process xxx" Sometime flashpolicyd might crash and to prevent it, you have to start it without generating logfile using: ./flashpolicyd.rb --xml flashpolicy.xml --logfile /dev/null --port 9009 NOTE: Make sure you have Ruby installed. If you have not, you can maybe install it with one of the following commands depending on your Linux distribution or through compiling the Ruby sources: apt-get install ruby (requires root access) Have fun!
