I'm using JBoss/Tomcat and JSP to serve up Flash (swf) files, but I'm running into a little difficulty. The Flash file plays fine when the browser is running on the same machine as the server; but, is a no-show when I access the web page from a different machine -- though the rest of the page (such as it is) is displayed. Oh, and the Flash files are generated dynamically; in other words, there's not just one flash file that I can squirrel away.
Following is the HTML that gets generated by the JSP (it's been pared down for testing purposes):
I've tried a couple of different values for the file specification (for example, "file:///C:/FlashFiles/test.swf" and "C:/FlashFiles/test.swf"), but this hasn't had any effect. Is this a security issue? Any thoughts on what could be going on?
p.s., I'm using Windows XP Pro/JBoss 3.2.3/Tomcat 4.1.29
