<cross-domain-policy> 
    <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="master-only"/> 
    <allow-access-from domain="*.example.com"/> 
    <allow-access-from domain="www.example.com"/> 
    <allow-http-request-headers-from domain="*.adobe.com" headers="SOAPAction"/> 
</cross-domain-policy> 

Generate a crossdomain.xml
