ServerSocket Native Extension
Adobe Air Native Extension (ANE) for ServerSocket on mobile platforms
The ServerSocket class is not available on mobile platforms directly from adobe in the Air SDK. This extension implements the API on the iOS platform. With your help, it could easily support other mobile platforms as well.
The native extension is using ruby's rake for it's build system and therefore requires ruby 1.9.3, this is installed by default on OS X Lion. Additionally, you must have Xcode and the iOS SDK's installed on your system.
To build simply type
rake build into your terminal from within the root directory of the native extension. If this is your first time building the build system will generate the file
config/build.yml and prompt you to edit the file for your system. The relevant changes are the path to your Adobe Air SDK and what version of the iOS SDK you are using.
After editing your
config/build.yml file, simply type
rake build again. If all goes well you will see the

ServerSocket is license under a permissive MIT source license. Fork well my friends.
