Does anybody know the IP Address of the download server for Flash Plugin's?

Because we have users sitting behind a strict content filter, I need to open the filter up for the plugin download IP address.

Thus allowing the flash player to download without the content filter being demilitarized.

Can anybody help?

If the only Chromium-based browser your organization uses is Google Chrome there is no need to install Flash Player PPAPI Plugin separately as Google embeds Flash Player in Chrome, however, it's disabled/blocked by default.  See Use or fix Flash audio & video - Computer - Google Chrome Help for information on enabling/allowing Flash in Chrome.

If you use a different Chromium-based browser (e.g. Opera), Adobe offers enterprise distribution licenses (free for the vast majority of use cases) for enterprise users to distribute Flash Player within their organization.  This is the full offline installer, not the online/shim installer available on get.adobe.com (that has optional third party offerings).  There are different options available to enterprise customers:

  • EXE Installer
  • MSI Installer
  • Background Updates (after initial installation via either EXE or MSI)
    • For this option, the customer hosts the background update resources locally and Flash Player is installed silently without any user interaction, whether or not the user is logged int
    • With this option, there is no Update Notification that prompts the user to update Flash Player

For more information on Flash Player distribution license see Adobe Flash Player Distribution | Adobe and the various options available to distribute Flash within your organization, see the Flash Player Admin Guide.

Just to expand on this a touch, because it's an enterprise Chrome distribution, I think you can also make use of Chrome's administrative preferences to whitelist Flash on relevant domains, even as Google forces more aggressive controls around Flash for end-users.  This might help reduce your volume of Flash-related helpdesk requests.

You can also use our redistributable MSIs for PPAPI to target Chrome.  They added that functionality to specifically address use-cases where enterprise GPO configurations prevented the Chrome component updater from working as expected.
