FileUploader authentication challange

FileUploader? does not upload files when running against an authentication protected site.

Tunneling the http messages shows the login (authentication) screen getting back as a response, rather then automatically leveraging the session authentication.

Here is the official Adobe bug report on the issue:

This problem affects Safari and Firefox. IE works.

I've done extensive research on this, and there are a few solutions thrown out there, like crossdomain.xml files and appending the sessionidd to the upload URL. These solutions may work in a few cases, but in large that is not the problem.

The solution is to use a real certificate. Self signed certificates will not work. If that does not solve the problem, the workarounds are to uploading to standard http passing cookies and session info) or to force the HTML FileUploader?.

There is nothing that can be done, so I'm going to close this ticket.
