Re: Unknown request to crossdomain.xml
Jeff is correct, but to add one additional note: IIRC, the check for "same host" is done by comparing the URLs, not by the underlying IP address, so even if your app launches from www.mscloud.com and it maps to 22.214.171.124 and your app is configured to hit 126.96.36.199, it will be seen as a different domain and crossdomain.xml will be accessed.

Yes, that's part of the security mechanism used by the player to control where a SWF can request data from. It comes into play if the SWF needs to issue requests to a host other than the one it was loaded from. In that scenario, it has to sit in the root directory of the server hosting the resource being requested, and must be configured to allow access from the host that the SWF was loaded from.

Good guess, it's running on MS cloud.
But, in general, does FP always look for the crossdomain file?
