I get an "Internet connection required for subscriptions" error. And yes, I'm connected to the internet, but I am behind a pretty mean firewall. Product Updates can see my proxy and download, but Activation can't?
Richhelvey are you utilizing a software firewall? Are you using Mac OS or Windows? I would also recommend reviewing Sign in or activation errors | CS6, CS5.5 Subscriptions, CS6 Perpetual - http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/activation-network-i ssues.html.
NBC has a pretty hardcore firewall, but I can hit activate.adobe.com and whatnot manually. And I went through everything on the page you link, both by myself and with tech support. My case has been escalated to the next level because the guy I was talking to went through all the procedures he knew of. Right now I'm trying to install it on a different artist's machine to see if it's just my computer, or something we're all facing over here.
Richhelvey it sounds like you are on the right track. Your IT department will also need to allow Internet access to PDApp.exe or Adobe Application Manager.app for Windows and Macintosh systems respectively.
Branched this discussion out to a new thread. CS6 is actually compatible with proxy servers. I would recommend you continue to work with your IT department.
As previously mentioned they will likely need to add an exclusion to allow PDApp.exe and/or the Adobe Application Manager to access the Internet. This is unrelated to a proxy server and has to do with the configuration of the Firewall.
Question from our show's IT guy: Can you tell us what the IP addresses, port and name of system that the Adobe Cloud software is supposed to communicate with?
He'll pass that info on to NBC IT, and hope they open things up for us.
Part of this information is in the document which was previously referenced in message #1. You need to have access to https://activate.adobe.com and https://lm.licenses.adobe.com/. These currently resolve into 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 respectively. You will also need port 23, 80, and 443 available.
Our IT guy talked with an Adobe guy for a while, and they determined that the proper ports are open, but it's still not working. Here's another question from him:
it looks there communication needs to translate on port 80 to make to work behind the proxy .. can you check if they can do that or find alternate protocol that can transverse traffic on port 80 – because the web-proxies do not understand anything other than port 80 ..
Is your I.T. guy saying that they are restricting traffic depending on what information is being sent through? At this point I would recommend you or your I.T. department work directly with our support team. For the best assistance, I recommend our chat support at http://adobe.ly/yxj0t6. Our chat representatives can provide a personalized experience to resolve the issue you have described.
Seriously what *** hat in the team thought 443,80 direct was a moment of brilliance given most corporate environments don't allow staff direct port access let alone "contact our IT dept".
You have as much chance of IT opening these two ports as I have getting OSX rolled out to all staff. Instead of arguing about whether or not IT Dept's should or shouldn't contact the support team release a patch that taps into existing proxy settings for your inbound/outbound connections like any other software does today.
Mossyblogz you have responded to quite an old discussion. Please see the Adobe Creative Cloud Service Access Documentation for IT section of http://www.adobe.com/devnet/creativesuite/enterprisedeployment.html for information on how to configure a managed network to work with the Adobe Creative software.
