Check the 'hosts" file for adobe entries. if you could see adobe entries there follow the below mentioned steps.
1. Go to the 'Hosts' file location.
WIN : C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
MAC: Go to finder menu on the top > go to folders > type '/etc', hit return.
2. move the hosts file to the desktop.
3. Open it.
WIN: open it with notepad.
MAC: double click it.
4. Delete all the adobe entries, as they are blocking your machine to connect to Adobe Activation Server.
5. Move it back to '/etc' folder.
Solution # 2
1. Check if you are working under any sort of firewall (system/network) / proxy.
2. Disable firewall / proxy.
Solution #3 (Should work)
Go for deployment : http://www.adobe.com/devnet/creativesuite/enterprisedeployment.html.
if nothing works, contact Adobe Tech support at : http://helpx.adobe.com/support.html
All I can say is THANK YOU Atul for a solution that finally worked.
Thanks a lot.
Solution #2 work for me.
Again, thanks a lot
Extreme thanks for this. I thought I was losing my mind. Solution #1 worked for me on my M1 Mac Desktop running Monterey 12.6
haven't seen a messed up hosts file report in quite a while, but glad you got it fixed.
I was having same problems too. In the end I bypassed the ISP (Telstra) DNS servers and used Googles (184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11) and it worked flawlessly. This is common issue with Telstra and I have bypssed them many times to solve the problem connecting to certain web sites or services.
Disabling a firewall so Adobe can detect the internet? Doesn't the fact that a firewall exists indicate that there is an internet connection accessible? This doesn't make sense to me and I don't like disabling my firewall, even briefly!
For the Community, this is my situation, just in case anybody has the same problem, and the way to fix it.
I had the same problem "Adobe C.C. Desktop" was making the updating of Photoshop (and other Adobe Suite programs) very slow or just stopped about 40%. (I'm using Windows 10 Pro, Updated to November 2019 Edition)
And depending on what date we are talking about, "Adobe C.C. Desktop" was also blocking my whole internet connection.
I've got a desktop Windows PC with an Optical Fiber connection that has a 600Mb Internet speed. I've got two routers:
- The first one, that decodes the Optical Fiber connection is an ONT and also a router supplied by my Internet Service Provider.
- The second one, that is downstream the first one, it's just a router, but with better protections and Wifi handling.
Following instructios of (Atul_Saini1) I have connected my computer directly to my first ONT + Router, without using second router.
(Anyway: it started to happen to me recently. Probably there has been some update of "Adobe C.C. Desktop" and since then this blocking problem has aroused). So I know now that anytime "Adobe C.C. Desktop" has an update, I've got to connect to my first ONT+Router.
Thank you very much, I hope it helps.
