this example is not really using external authentication.
It's just passing some sort of unique id to the authenticator.



in order to correctly use external authentication you should
have a server-side component that build an external authentication
token (that looks like "exx=bunch-of-base64-stuff") and pass it to
the AdobeHSAuthenticator.

The original code, as provided in the cocomo sdk under flex
example, generates the same error. I passed roomURL and authToken
as part of FlashVars:

"FlashVars",
"roomURL=http://connectnow.acrobat.com/fidelity2/ramr&authToken=6d952f451ae24061bb93e4c532014e88"



The confusion is, it is not clear what should be the query
string. Any help is appreciated.

the authToken parameter should be THE RESULT of
Session.getAuthenticationToken that you called server-side.



The Flex example doesn't run without the appropriate
server-side counterpart (the purpose of External Authentication is
that you authenticate your users on your server, and then create a
token to pass to our server).



What are you running server-side and how did you "make" your
authentication token ?
