    Client/Server sockets in flash?

    Hi,

    Before I go barking up the wrong conifer, I'm sure someone can put me right!

    Is it possible to write client/server applications in Flash? (I mean, can you write a peice to flash to connect to a server and also act as a server itself) i.e. is there an ACCEPT protocol for Flash as well as the CONNECT protocol? Or does flash just stream data as a client to the web browser?

    TIA.
    Mike.

    Flash as a Server

    I search through a lot of forums and so many sites searching for at least one glimpse of code fragment which describes the flash as a server...!!!

    Alas, I could not. This is a fact. Flash does not provide any class like ServerSocket (which is available in Java).

    I am planning therefore write my own class which will resemble the functionality of a ServerSocket though in the background it will be just a simple Socket...! Does not this sound great..

    Will let you know if in the future I complete my project in this regard.
    All the best until then, and do let me know if you find something like this on your own or from any other resource.
