Dear community forum , 

 

I am a long time user of ftp.adobe.com in order to download patches  for Adobe product familly . 

 

Does someone knows if ftp.adobe.com is still in use . It seems it has not been up to date .  If this is the case a message from Adobe would have been nice to notify about any service status change . 

 

Thank you 

 

Guillaume.

It is still working, but they stopped uploading the latest updates to it (at least for Reader), for reasons unknown.

The closest notification we got was a post on these forums by an Adobe Employee some time ago.

It is very unfortunate, as the FTP storage of older installers is a very useful tool for many people... I guess they prefer you pass through their web-site for that.

I think Adobe expect everyone to have migrated to using a SCUP catalog long ago. The problem with notifying a change of use of the FTP server - how would they have reached anyone?

Put an update on the main page, and/or a text file in the FTP folders themselves?

I guess they might eventually be discovered, that could work. But I suspect it would never occur to Adobe - this has probably been automatically updated by a process they all considered obsolete, which finally broke...
