All socket requests MUST have an xmlsocket server serve the policy file. This will present issues when the engine.io server is behind a firewall or other proxy server because the xmlsocket requests are NOT http requests and thus will be dropped.

As a side note: do people really want to use flashsockets?

IE6-9 are in aggregate a sizable % of share. So yes.

Also judging by the number of filed issues we get relating to them.

But I think we should move it into a plugin engine.io-flash that way we support less and keep file size down

Re IE6-9: just my thinking is that if Angular.js is dropping IE8 support (http://blog.angularjs.org/2013/12/angularjs-13-new-release-approaches.html), Google Apps discontinuing IE9 (http://thenextweb.com/google/2013/11/05/google-drops-internet-explorer-9-support-google-apps-less-three-weeks-ie11s-release/#!vRW1Y) then I'm not sure that engine.io should be optimizing performance for these old browsers. Just my 2 cents :)

If we are moving flashsockets to the user land, we could close this.
