Flex file does not load when using SSL

Hi all,


I wrote a flex application, using BlazeDS that was working just fine.


Then I was asked to change my server to work with SSL.


After I changed the server settings to run with SSL, the flex file just refuses to load, without any error.


I started digging around and found some people who had the same problem and found a solution.


I followed this article: http://blog.crankybit.com/flex-remoting-over-ssl/ but the solution did not work for me.


In one of the forums, they recommended to install some kind of sniffer, and I installed IEWatch (http://www.iewatch.com/downloadie.aspx),

where I found out that the GET request for the swf file gets an error back:

Method: GET


URL: https://localhost:8443/cf-dashboard



I also noticed that even though I’ve added the : <add-no-cache-headers>false</add-no-cache-headers>


The HTTP response header still contained this:

Pragma:  No-cache
Cache-Control:  no-cache


When reviewing this: http://old.nabble.com/flex-application-is-not-loading-under-HTTPS-td19790768.html , I found this link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323308

Made the required changes in the registry and ta-da! It works!


The problem is, my application is deployed in a very large bank, and it will probably not be easy to convince them to change the registry for all their employees :(


Does anyone have any other suggestion/solution?
