Tomcat and SWF

I have noticed I am unable to play Macromedia .SWF files from Tomcat
5.0.16 on Linux (based on fedora core 1).
I am having two SWF files say A.swf and B.swf. A.swf file is having an
Image. This file gets loaded successfully. The A.swf file is loading
B.swf on click. B.swf is having audio.
When I click on image of A.swf, I have noticed the B.swf is not
getting played. Both files are in the same folder. Path for B.swf is
correctly mentioned in A.swf file. I tried to access B.swf directly
using URL but in vain.
Is there something required updating in server.xml or web.xml file

Are you *sure* the B.swf is OK?

Can you 'access it by URL' if it
is at GeoCities or such? What
message do you get when you
attempt to access it?

( Your description sounds like the
problem has little to do with Tomcat. )

Thanks Andrew for your reply.
Yes B.SWF is perfect. There is no problem with B.swf at all.
I am using my local intranet network.

So the 'local intranet network' is the
one running Tomcat?

The only other thing I can think of is that
somebody may have enabled 'HotLink' protection
on the *sound file* the SWF is trying to load..
is the sound part of an archive, or is it a
stand alone file?

OTOH, that does not explain the problem if
you can load B.swf from Tomcat and get the
sound that way..

[ After that I am stumped, sorry. ]

You might want to verify that the Shockwave plugin is still intact on your browser.
