  2. Here presented is a popular way to circumvent te activation procedures of Adobe CS 5.5

  7. # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
  8. #
  9. # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
  10. # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
  11. # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
  12. # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
  13. # space.
  14. #
  15. # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
  16. # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
  17. #
  18. # For example:
  19. #
  20. #      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
  21. #       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host
  22.  
  23. # localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
  24. #       127.0.0.1       localhost
  25. #       ::1             localhost
