A.R. Phone Home - Mac Applications & Software

Simple Question. I hope it's got a simple answer. Is there a way to stop Adobe Reader 6.0 from phoning home every time it's launched. I've tried disabling "Check for Updates" and a couple of other things, but it still insists on calling in. I like some of the new features in version 6, but this one "feature" is about to send me back to 5. -- net is a heavily-filtered SPAMtrap. Email replies may not get through.

    Try "Little Snitch". It allows you to block an ip address.

    I'll take a look at that one. Thanks for the tip.

    Well, I took a look. Little Snitch is interesting, and it stopped Adobe
    Reader from phoning home, but it seemed to introduce a bit of flakiness
    to my system.
