Handle swf in the scripts

Hi,

I am using Performance Center 9.52.
I have an application where there are many calls to urls/components related to flash player.
For example: https://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif

Now what is happening is that in the page render, the script is forcing the request to the server. i.e. Loadrunner is treating server as www.adobe.com. Siteminder doesn't recognize this url and is attemptning a dns timeout, which times out after 2 seconds because there is no dns in the dmz.
The tool, can't emulate adobe flash, and the code is set to render www.adobe.com as link.
The server is not able to resolve www.adobe.com internally and so when the load test is run the Vusers start failing.
can the script be adjusted to accept or deal with http headers? I've tried to change the run time settings to accept headers (application/x-shockwave-flash,*/*\r\n and application/x-shockwave-flash, but none worked.

for now an entry was made to the host file on the server so that it renders www.adobe.com correctly. But thi cannot be a permanent solution.
How can we handle this in the script?
