Hi Bofh, thanks for the help in debugging that, the instant i removed the spaces it all started working perfectly from windows, will test from ubuntu laptop later :)
The wolfchat.net's policy-file has the wrong syntax. If your "to-ports" list is to have multiple ports, you can not have any space characters in them, at least not with the linux version of Adobe's flash player. I have tested the server at dum.acc.umu.se with firefox on Ubuntu, Safari and firefox on OS X Leopard and with IE7, Chrome and Firefox on Windows Vista, all without problems (except an ugly font on linux, but that has been fixed in trunk). If you don't have some firewall that prevents the flash player from connecting to the needed ports, I don't know what it could be.
wolfchat.net 843, the policy file should be readable, i altered the iptables to allow it. The example site on your page only worked under windows for me.
I believe the error means that the policy file could not be read. Perhaps you have a (personal?) firewall that blocks the access? I just tested the example server with flash player 10,0,32,18 and it worked fine. The client need to have access to TCP port 843 for the policy file and port 2001 for the server in the example.
If you can't find the problem, please file a bug report naming your OS, browser and player versions and I'll dig further.
I have tried to install this but it failed with a security error eventPhase=2 text="Error #2048", I have followed the instructions and my policy seems to be being served correctly. I even tried the example link on the page and that failed to
