Troubleshooting the Closed Captioning Pod Ports Defaults and Settings
Verify the IP and port for the service you are leveraging. For example, Caption Colorado information includes:
- Port: 11100
- Hostname: www.captionedtext.com
- IP: 126.96.36.199
If you are experiencing any trouble with the Closed Captioning pod while using it in an Adobe Connect Meeting, please the correct port, hostname and IP in the pod.
Note that the IP, (in the example case 188.8.131.52), depending on your infrastructure’s network security settings, may need to be white-listed.

Sometimes, within an enterprise, the port used for the Closed Caption Pod may be blocked and prevent the Meeting host from starting the captioning service. One possible workaround for this is to log into the Meeting from outside the enterprise LAN – off the VPN or on an external guest network to start the captioning service in the Meeting. This will often work when the Adobe Connect servers are hosted externally as the connection between the servers and the captioning service is often not the problem, only the connection between the Meeting host and the service.
