    Installation of Flash distributable MSI results in external communication to fpdownload2.macromedia.com flooding WAN links

      After applying online and receiving the links for flash distribution in our Corporate Environment, we setup a basic distribution of the MSI using BMC's Footprints product. We expected that the installation would install the product on the endpoint without any external communication, after all that is the purpose of applying for and obtaining such an installer. Each installation is generating an external call to fpdownload2.macromedia.com and is pulling back over our Internet  http://fpdownload2.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/update/current/sau/18/install/install_al l_win_ax_sgn.z   Endpoints pull 70mb of data a piece to retrieve this installer, saturating our WAN links to our remote sites. We would like to avoid this situation. Why does your distribution installer not install your product, but call an 70MB install back over the internet?
