I am running a dual boot on my pc.
1) Boot 1 is used for pc gaming2) Boot 2 is used for work
The pc is behind a Netgear router. I have ZA Internet Security on Boot 2. Boot 1 does not use any firewall software.
My son plays a lot of World of Warcraft, using boot 1. Here's the problem. When I use boot 2, ZA registers and blocks connection attempts at port 3724. That is of course a port that is used by World of Warcraft. What I cannot understand is how these connection attempts get through the router. WoW is not installed on boot 2, so there is no software listening f r connections on that port. The router should drop these connection attempts, since my pc never asked for any traffic on port 3724.
Is the router misconfigured? I don't think so. I have tested boot 2 on grc.com:s "Shields Up!" and similar services and got perfect resultat: my router protects my pc 100 percent (I have to manually open a port in the router to get a reaction from ZA).Any clue?
