Flash works locally, but not when uploaded

i uploaded my new portfolio which is nested inside another mc, it runs on my computer.

the site loads but when i click on the portfolio button or just access the .swf directly, the window transfer bar loads a bit and then hangs at “Waiting for server…”

can anyone give me some hints as to what might be going on? i’ve re-upped files i thought may have been corrupted during the upload, checked the xml to make sure it looked ok, etc
and now im just stuck

thanks for any help
