How can I set this option (DisableSockets=1) for Pepper Flash (Chrome)?
I've visted the Settings Manager page and didn't find such an option:
I've also added the mms.cfg file to these directories:
C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Pepper Data\Shockwave Flash\System
But unlike IE (which no longer ignores the proxy setting), it seems that Chrome doesn't read any of them.
I need to disable it so that flash will use the proxy server instead of directly connecting.
Chrome's instance of Flash Player is completely insulated from the system. It cannot read or write to the configuration files shared by the other Flash Player instances on the system.
See pp28 of the system administrator's guide for details:
As I've said in my OP, I've already placed an mms.cfg file in the path specified in the guide (C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Pepper Data\Shockwave Flash\System) and it's not working.
It's possible that this is a bug. Details on the versions of Windows, Chrome and Flash Player would be useful. If you're testing against a piece of public-facing content, a link would also be interesting.
