Thread: Is turning off "protect ZA client" safe?

    Default Is turning off "protect ZA client" safe?

    I use a program to access my home computer remotely while traveling (using my laptop).
    When the ZA popups (on my home computer)
    show up, clicking "Accept, Deny, or Remember my choice" (remotely from my laptop) does not work.
    When I uncheck the ZA option "protect ZA Client", the remote access does work.
    So, my question is, Is it unsafe to uncheck this?
    And, is there another way to accomplish this without unchecking it?

    Donny,

    Is this remote software program you use called LogMeIn? With LogMeIn, you have to uncheck protect ZA client, otherwise you can't close the ZA status window or if an alert comes on the screen, you will be unable to close it. I emailed LogMeIn support a long time ago about this, they told me you just have to uncheck protect za client.

    It's Radmin, but it sounds like the same thing.
    Radmin's tech support told me the same thing.
    I was wondering how safe it is to do that, or if there was another way to fix the problem.
    BTW, I forgot to mention that I am using the free version of ZA firewall, version 8 something.

    I tried your suggestion, but still it's still not working.
    What version of Radmin are you using?
    I am using the latest version just released - ver 3.3
    My question is still - Is unchecking &quot;protect ZA client&quot; unsafe, and is there another way to accomplish this?

    I've never heard of Radmin before so I can't say much about that. Is unchecking protect ZA client unsafe? I would say it would be better for it to be checked as it'll stop apps from shutting it down or through task manager, ending the app. Protect client checked, you can still shutdown ZA by right clicking icon and clicking shut down. It's the only way I know around it if you use LogMeIn. I don't know about Radmin though.

    I just googled and checked out Radmin. Free for 30 days? That's a shame. LogMeIn Free is just one of LogMeIn's remote software products, and it's completely free. I just wanted to point that out. It doesn't support Linux yet though.
