Download Flash Player via FTP

#1 Post by horki » 2019-08-18 12:01

Hi,
I prefer to download updates for Flash Player not using the Adobe Download Manager.
Links to the files on Macromedias FTP-server can be found here:

<on a website>

Can I download these files via FilleZilla? If yes, how do I do that?

Flash Player is the kind of software you are not supposed to update. You are supposed to uninstall this steaming pile of shit.

If the server is an FTP or SFTP server, then you can connect and do everything it allows you. So, if the server allows downloading, then yes, you should be able to get the distribution. Until next year, when it is discontinued.
