Zone Alarm

  birkdalite 17:40 05 Jul 03

Because I understand it seems to be the safe thing to prevent all sorts of nasties, I have recently installed Zone Alarm. OK! nowI get all sorts of pop ups telling me that "12345 on port xyz"has been blocked and asking if this is ok by me or not???? Er! as near as I can tell you I don't know!! Yes I am exaggerating to illustrate but how can I tell if I am killing off a genuine message from someone I know ?

You can switch such messages off as they are usually nothing to worry about - it just shows that ZoneAlarm is doing its stuff.

click the zonealarm icon in the tray and then select alerts and logs and click off.they are annoying.

if you need to know that its working ok click overview and have a look at the blocked intrusions at the top of the page.

Thank you both for your reassurances, have tried the test, and it seemed to prove that everything is up to scratch, so I will leave well alone.
Thank you both.
