AS3 P2P Helper Class

This is just a simple class I created to allow to clients (AIR Desktop, AIR Mobile) to send and receive commands from each other using Flash Player 10 P2P (Peer to Peer). This class is used to drive a AIR application running on a large wall mounted flat screen monitor from an Android mobile device. These are two different applications but are talking to each other through this common library while connected on the same network.

There is a great little starter video by Paul Trani with CS5. Peter Elst is also working on a P2P library called Cocoon that allows more robust communication. Also check out Renaun Erickson’s post for setting up your Mac as a hub for local P2P connections without WiFi.
