    Default Anonymizer stops latest Zonealarm free firewall

    Hello.
    Just installed Anonymizer (purchased through ZoneAlarm website).
    Set program control to allow Anonymizer full access, etc.
    They SEEM to work well together.
    Except, when I test the latest free firewall effectiveness, by going to GRC.com and usingtheir Shields Up! port tests, Zonealarm is rendered useless. Most ports are fullyexposed to the net.
    When I shut off Anonymizer, Zonealarm is once again effectively hidingall ports from the net.
    Can anyone suggest a fix? Cure? Other?
    Thanks.

    Annoyomizer is a proxy program. It changes your Internet settings so that you are using one of Annoyomizer's proxy servers. When you are using a proxy server and try to use Shields Up!, Shields Up! actually tests the proxy server's server and not your machine since you are no longer connected directly to the internet. If you go to Shields Up! home page with Annoyomizer off and on, you will see that the IP address displayed will be different.
