from MM's materials :

Using the XMLSocket object
To use the XMLSocket object, the server computer (sic) must run a daemon
that understands the protocol used by the XMLSocket object. The protocol
is as follows:


 ~     XML messages are sent over a full-duplex TCP/IP stream socket
connection.

  ~    Each XML message is a complete XML document, terminated by a zero
byte.

 ~     An unlimited number of XML messages can be sent and received over
a single
XMLSocket connection.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

the best bet might be to establish a socket on the user's machine via
"localhost" and route the stream through that.  Flash has problems with
regards to it's "security" scheme which can cause trouble as well.
New files which are loaded into the client, when embedded in a browser,
have to derive from the domain of the original file -  this apparently
includes XML.  This isn't a problem with projectors.
