Can anyone provide a definitive list of URL's which should be allowed to bypass a company's proxy server in order for Flash to auto update?

Flash doesn't allow you to specify a proxy user/password to authenticate and go through the proxy, so we'd just like to white-list the Flash update site names and be done with it.

Thanks for the help!

Hi there,

I', also interested in this info in order to use the auto-update feature (need URL's in order to authorize unauthenticated access to them so the auto-updater, which runs under local SYSTEM account, could reach them).

Thank You!

Hi Nash and Andrei,


We can provide a list of URLs to authorize, however this list is not definitive as it changes quarterly and you would need to update your list quarterly with this change.  I would recommend instead that you host the background update resources locally, thereby avoiding the requests to the Adobe servers.  Information on how to do this (including licensing the player for distribution if you haven't done so yet) is available in chapter 3 (page 21) of the Adobe Flash Player Administration Guide for Flash Player | Adobe Developer Connection.

Hello,

Thank You for your answer.

I am aware of the steps needed to setup a "locally administered update server" for Adobe Flash Player, but for some reasons we would prefer to "preserve" the usual update process from Internet/Adobe servers, even if that will require periodic adjustment to our rules on the proxy server.

Basically that means that those URLs should be allowed to be reachable by "unauthenticated users" and that is the reason for the need of the exact URLs, insteat of someting like *.adobe.com or *.macromedia.com.

Moreover, it will be a great help to be able to do that for other products from Adobe, like AIR and Adobe Reader, so, if possible, the same "URLs for auto-update" pointing will be nice.

Kind regards,

Andrei

Thank You very much for your detailed answer.

We will use someting like "http://fpdownload[2].macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/update/current/sau/" to authorize and I think (hope) that this will cover more than 1 quarter

Kind regards,

Andrei
