I am developing an app in Ext JS 4.1. My problem is to send a request from my app to a web service in a different server. I know that AJAX can not connect to a different server, but this is possible for REST proxy? Someone know if there is a solution for this problem?

Kind regards

Moved to Q&A forum as this had nothing to do with Cmd

REST uses AJAX, so if AJAX can't do it then neither can REST.

To access services on different servers you should consider either JSON-P or CORS (cross-origin resource sharing). Neither approach is specific to ExtJS, they're both standard approaches that are well-documented elsewhere. Both have their drawbacks and I suggest researching them thoroughly before choosing which way to go.
