Flash Player 24 Issues, update

Postby Lapo » 16 Dec 2016, 09:14


Since the release of Flash Player 24.0.0.186 there have been multiple complaints about clients not being able to connect to SmartFoxServer or issues with logging into the AdminTool

These issues are caused by a bug introduced by Adobe in the Flash Player which has been acknowledged and verified. You can read the details here:

There already is a FlashPlayer 24 beta (released on Dec 14th, 2016) which addresses the issue:

An alternative solution for those stuck with clients on the buggy Flash Player 24 is to open TCP port 843 on the SmartFox side.

TCP Port 843 is used for the "master socket policy" and it will solve the problem for the time being, while waiting for the final release of Adobe's next update.

You will have to:

1- Add TCP port 843 under AdminTool > Server Configurator
2- Restart SmartFoxServer 2X

NOTE: Port 843 requires root privileges under Linux/Unix.
