Under my circumstances I need to be able to use raw sockets to manually craft IP/TCP/RTMP headers and so forth. However I do not know how flash applications communicate data back to servers. I need to know how to do this for a website called Tinychat. I guess in one, over simplified, sentence I need to be able to send data directly to the server. Obviously I don't really know what I'm talking about but I have a project in which I HAVE to do this and I'm freaking out because I don't even know where to begin or even how to explain my situation fully. If you close this question I completely understand. Any help WHATSOEVER would be absolutely awesome.
