Firmata/AS3Glue on LINUX

Hi, I've got firmata and as3glue up and running on XP with no problems. I'd like to port my project over to LINUX. I'm using UBUNTU and the ser2net serial proxy server. The ser2net.conf file looks like this:,5332:raw:300:/dev/ttyUSB0:57600 8DATABITS NONE 1STOPBIT

i did verify my arduino and ftdi drivers are up and running on linux as /dev/ttyUSB0

when running a Flash arduino test program, I do get socket connected but then immediately socket closed

Was wondering if anyone had any ideas. I did also try the ArduinoFlash java based serial proxy but it threw java errors when running.

Thanks in advance,
