UPDATE 18.Nov.03: I implemented http-tunneling for the flash-client in nfc. You will find a suitable
flash-client (for both socket and http) in the nfc-server which can be downloaded from server modifications for nfc.
The client on this page uses only socket-communication and can be used with the default nfc-distribution from sourceforge.
Here is a new Flash-Chatclient for nfcchat. It is partly based on the work of ajdigital, who created the first flash-client for
nfc, containing a flash-library and a java-counterpart for nfc. For more inormation on the technical facts please
Download: You can download the chatclient complete with FLA- and GIF-files here:
Fell free to modify and enhance this client. I would be happy to hear about it:
This new client currently uses ajdigital's library and splits the interface into two movies. Most of the chat-interface-design was done by Marc Hermann
from Sand und Schiefer. Right now the flash-client does not support the http-tunnelling for firewalls
which nfc can provide.
The main movie nfcFlash.swf can be called with four parameters:
_host=www.yourdomain.com : The server where nfc is running.
_port=7777 : The port nfc is listening on.
_user=username : The username which the chat-client should use to connect to the server.
_pass=secret : An optional password to send to the server.
So the URL in the HTML-file would look like this: http://www.yourdomain.com/nfcflash.swf?_host=chat.yourdomain.com&_port=7777&_user=guest&_pass=
You can use the chat-interface with any kind of login-procedure: you could read the data from a database if you want to integrate the chat
into an existing environment, or you could use a simple HTML-form to enter these values, or use the login-movie which is included in the download.
The login-movie nfcLogin.swf simply asks for username and password and then loads the main chat-client via loadMovieNum().
