Hello Sebastien.

Please see Flash Policy setup instructions - Important Update from 12th January 2017.

Your flash policy is good on port 843, but Adobe Flash has a new update, and you must change your client connection port to not be in the range of 6665-6669.

For example, to use port 7000:
  1. Update config.js
    (You may need to flush your web hosting cache after this change)
    params.port = 7000;
  2. Stop your Flash Policy Daemon process
  3. Update flashpolicy.xml:
    <allow-access-from domain="*" to-ports="7000" />
  4. Restart your Flash Policy Daemon
  5. Update your IRCd Listen Block
    listen {
            ip *;
            port 7000;
  6. /rehash your IRCd to apply the change

If you use the lightIRC Chat Generator at to create a web chat embed for your site, and/or you connect to as your server, please use port 7070 and policy port 843 to connect with lightIRC.
