This question already has an answer here:
I'm not much of a networking guru, but I'm needing to conduct an experiment to see why some RSLs are not loading on some client computers when they try to load a swf off of their intranet's server. I'm tempted to believe this is the result of their inability to access adobe.com to download the RSLs. However we have seen these same swfs work on other computers that are kept away from the Internet, and my theory here is that this is simply due to the RSLs being cached a while back inside of their Flash Players.
To test the theory, I'm wanting to completely block *.adobe.com from my computer, so as to avoid being able to download RSLs from their website. Then I want to completely uninstall, then reinstall Flash Player, then load the swf from one of our own servers.
I am NOT able to manipulate hardly any of our own networking at all. I can use Windows Firewall, but that doesn't appear to be able to block specific sites. I have tried adding this site to things like the Restricted Zone in IE, but I'm still able to visit the site just fine for some reason. There is no reason this should be so difficult.
Any ideas? Thanks!
