Urgent!! Opener is empty in javascript

Dear all,
I meet one serious problem in my project.
the opener is null if I open webpage from server A and use javascript 'window.open' to open a new window for displaying a page in server B.
But it works if I put these two html pages in one server
The sample codes are as following,
The alert window is shown if I put test1.html and test.html in serverA.
But the alert window is not shown if I put test.html in serverB but I put test1.html in serverA.
Does anybody can help me?
window.name = "testWinow"
----end of test.html--------
-------end of test1.html---------

Ah, you found out the wonderful security restrictios with javascript. The files have to be on the same server I am afraid. This is to keep people from using other peoples information. Stinks...doesn't it...

can you open a new window that contains a page on your site then use that page to automatically redirect to a page on another domain?
eg http://one.com/one.html

Then send them somewhere else

or similar...
Just a thought. Even if you got it to work, its a bit of a hack so I wouldn't trust it to continue working...
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
