Allowing Access to an XML file in a Block Rule

As most Systems Admins know, allowing full access for the Adobe updater to access the Internet can cause major bandwidth issue.

 

The stop this from happening we have a rule blocks access to the URLs that the updater uses an for users trying to install Adobe products manually.  We only allow admins to do updates.

 

Here is what we block. *download*.adobe.com* and *get.adobe.com*. 

 

This work great but some of our online training uses Adobe flash player.  Whan launching the training it calls to Adobe to verify that your flash player version.

 

Here is the two paths that it can call:

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/swz/flex/crossdomain.xml

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/swz/crossdomain.xml

 

So how do still block access for updates and allow access to the crossdomain.xml
