[webkit-help] Playing local SWFs in webkit

I have an issue with to regard to playing local swfs wherein the video 
based swfs load and play properly with the webkit_web_view_open API but 
when the local swf needs to connect to the internet and get the data to 
display it is not able to connect to the internet.

I have Adobe flash 10 and have also set the Global Security settings for 
internet access for the particular folder housing the local swf (its an 
RSS Reader) which works fine from other browsers.

I also tried the same swf in GTKLauncher of webkit in case there are any 
errors in my app but the swf also fails to connect to the internet in 
the GTKLauncher too.

Is there any security setting in webkit which does'nt allow socket 
communication from within swfs ?

Please let me know the details.
