Communicating to cgi on a different domain/ server

G’day all!

I’ve never attempted this before and would appreciate some advice on connecting to server-side scripts at a different domain.

For example, on one domain would be the main site with all the .swf’s, but the database containing the relative information is on a different domain and the two need to communicate with each other.

Would I use the LocalConnection object or if possible, could someone post an example to connect to a .php file on a different server than the .swf that is calling it.

The main issue why I’m asking is the main site server is nt with asp and I need to call a php file to connect to a database whereby both are on a *nix server.

Any assistance would be helpful, thanks.
