we work on a corporate network but the url for the font activation is not getting through, we have to use a personal hotspot to get any fonts to activate in indesign etc. but this shouldnt be necessary.

can you advise the url it looks for please?

Maybe your network is blocking fonts.adobe.com? Can they "whitelist" it?

Hi @jeffc40656262 , Do you mean font activation for use in InDesign documents or web pages?

 

For loading fonts into a web page, you have to create a web font set at AdobeType, get the embed code for the set, and add it to the header of the HTML page calling the fonts. More here:

 

https://helpx.adobe.com/fonts/using/add-fonts-website.html

 

For activating fonts to be used in the Adobe applications, use the Fonts panel of your CC app—you need to be logged into your CC account to activate fonts—it should happen automatically, there’s no web url to set:

Tried the online chat for advice but unfortunately it was no help

they told me to turn off the corporate firewall .....er i dont think so as we have already proved something is being blocked but dont know what. 

also told to clear the cache and restart the computer.

we have a work around with the hotspot but thats not very secure either

Not sure if this helps, but when you call for an Adobe typeface in a web page the url domain is https://use.typekit.net

For example:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://use.typekit.net/xpu5tls.css">

 

Maybe try white listing the https://use.typekit.net domain?
