Flash Media Server deep inside still a little bit Flashcomm…

A year ago Macromedia/Adobe released Flash Media Server to the public. Gone was Flash Communication Server, dumped aside for the new, shiny server that could call Webservices, rename Files and what more….but today i found out deep inside this new, shiny server still feels a bit like it’s predecessor. When you connect to another server from Serverside Actionscript, the client.agent string display:

FlashCom/2.0.2 WIN/5.1.2600.

That’s right. 🙂 Now…you can check for this string on the server to do various security checks, and prevent other evil people from…let’s say…leeching streams like Stefan told you yesterday.
