How do I troubleshoot "Permission denied" error for a Flash ad?The file crossdomain.xml is a special file that controls the cross-domain policy and permissions for Flash. Potential issues include permission errors and issues with cookie data. Example: In a setup with a missing crossdomain.xml, a frequency cap's cookie cannot be set by the a video VAST player. This allows the pre-roll video ad to be shown to the same viewer multiple times.
Permission IssueIf you are serving a Flash/SWF ad and get this error in the browser:
<cross-domain-policy> <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="all"/> <allow-access-from domain="*" /> <allow-http-request-headers-from domain="*" headers="*"/> </cross-domain-policy>If you prefer a more restrictive version that still allows AdSpeed ad servers specifically and not any wildcard domain:
<cross-domain-policy> <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="all"/> <allow-access-from domain="g.adspeed.net" /> <allow-http-request-headers-from domain="g.adspeed.net" headers="*"/> </cross-domain-policy>
