Forcing BlueBox-only usage

Postby inno1 » 11 Nov 2009, 13:42


We are trying to force BB-only usage due to regional networking specifics and staging environment constraints - most users are behind strict firewalls.

Currently everyone experiences 20 second time-out if we specify some incorrect port. We need a way to make BB connection forced and instant.

Any ideas? Thx.

Under Flash the socket timeout has become very slow since Flash Player 10. Your problem has been reported some other times... unfortunately it depends on the Player itself :(

As regards forcing the BlueBox, you simply need to pass a "wrong" port number. This way the socket will fail and revert to HTTP tunnel.
At the moment the API always attempt socket first.
We'll take into consideration to introduce a way to start a connection directly via BlueBox.

In case you need this for your project you can access our API sources and make a small modification to make it happen. If you need help contact us directly, via email
