    Does CC need Akamai to be active?

    - JM - Level 3

      It appears that the only application using Akamai Net Session is Adobe. Is this needed for CC to work?

       

      thank you,

          Thank you Rajashree for the response -

           

          I had read the Adobe Akamai FAQ but there is a discrepancy in the information in the article and the list of software that the FAQ applies to. So I'm back to the same question. As a result of the error in the Adobe document I don't know what applications are effected.

           

          Does CC or CS6 require Akamai Net Session?

           

          The information in the Adobe/Akamai FAQ:

           

          Some Adobe trial products use Akamai Download Manager, also called the Akamai NetSession Interface. Trial products that use Akamai include Acrobat X Pro, Adobe Captivate, and the Technical Communications Suite.

           

           

          The following list are the applications that the document applies to, but it does not mention Acrobat X Pro or Adobe Captivate. So I assume that the list below is not a comprehensive/complete.
