Hello,

I work for a large company in Australia, where our network sits behind a firewall that restricts much user access to the Internet. Whilst they can view net sites, executable files cannot be downloaded. This includes the auto-install Flash/Shockwave player from Macromedia. It will not install through the firewall.

And as the player is not downloadable as an executable file, we cannot download from outside the firewall and then make the file available to others within the network.

Are there any alternative players for Windows (98/NT,2K), that can be downloaded as an executable file? (It is easy enough for one person to download this from outside the fw).

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Brett

the latest versions of the browsers should come with the plug-in. so I guess that's one way you could try it.

Thanks. We have tried that, but generally, most sites still have trouble being viewed. I have been able to install mine properly from Macromedia, and can view the sites without a hitch.

Thanks,
Brett

Best I could find was this:
http://www.macromedia.com/support/fl...oldplayers.htm

Allows you to download the installers, but only for Flash 2 - 4.

Try emailing Macromedia.

Cheers
