Zona Alarm alerts

  JaneAtt 08:36 06 Dec 04

This morning I am being bombarded with alerts from Zona Alarm.

They say things like
"The firewall has blocked Internet access to your computer from (TCP Port 4125) (TCP Flags : S)

Some talk about UDP ports.

Some have let me go to the "more info" screen - but not all - when I do I am told to decide if they can be trusted.

1. How do i know?
2. Why am I getting hundreds this am?

Please reply in simple language!

Open Zone Alarm go to Alerts & Logs and tick OFF in alerts events.

Should have explained, Zone alarm is blocking entries all the time and if you don't turn Alerts off it shows every one.

Thank you!

The vast bulk of the alerts are nothing to worry about in any way - just normal traffic.

The advice to turn off the alerts is sound and saves unnecessary worrying.
