Thanks for this suggestion Alf, and to you too Ralf.
I am already using nonfree flash.
I have discovered that everything works in my house, where the "only"
difference from school is the firewall. I have not customised squid on
So even though I disabled every component of the firewall (Untangle)
for testing, it must still be dropping some flash. This is on very
rare occasions, however. I am only aware of this one website, and its
not all the games from it.
There was a flash - based school website that didn't work a couple of
years ago, and I corresponded briefly with the IT guy there. He was
confident that his site worked everwhere in the world except my
school. Meanwhile his was the only flash that didn't show in our
school, so I was "sure" the problem was not ours! The site has since
been rewritten and is no longer flash-based. I remember that the page
source body contained only an empty script tag
Anyway this time I have admitted to the teacher that I don't know why
his maths games don't come through, and he has kindly said never mind.
I will probably not test anymore unless further problems occur. I
suppose I should replace the school Untangle with my home ipcop for
further testing, but there is quite a lot of inertia to overcome there
and I don't think I will get round to doing it without more stimulus
Thanks again for the suggestions
