I'm currently using Illustrator CS4 on OX Snow leopard (10.6.2). While I'm connected remotely to a server using VPN tracker 6, Illustrator will freeze whenever I try to open or save a file. It only does this when connected to this specific server and no other adobe application is affected (Photoshop, InDesign). If I disconnect to the server while Illustrator is frozen when opening/saving, it will immediately resume whatever its doing like nothing was wrong.
Has anyone encountered a similar problem? I could just run Illustrator while not connected to the server but thats very inconvenient.
One of my users is having a similar issue. If he is connected to our VPN from home, he can't fully launch Illustrator. I would assume that Illustrator would cease to work if he connected to the VPN after launching. He is running 10.5.8 and CS3 with a cisco VPN connected through a web interface. The work around to use one or the other is there, but you're correct saying it's inconvenient. Anyone know a fix on either the Mac end or Illustrator?
