    Default ZoneAlarm free firewall and PeerGuardian2 : how is it work ?

    Hello,
    I'm using ZoneAlarm free firewall 6.5.737, PerGuardian2 and Azureus 2.5.0.4.
    I'm not an expert in Network and Internet so I don't understand the following :
    When I'm using Azureus, PeerGuardian blocks incoming connections from
    the black lists on my port (137, 1755, and some others).
    Using ShieldsUp from grc.com, these ports are stealth :
    Port StatusProtocol and Application

    137 Stealth netbios-ns NetBIOS Name Service
    1755 Stealth ms-streaming ms-streaming




    Why ZoneAlarm does'nt stop these connections ?

    Thank's in advance for your explanations.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
    Software Version:6.5

    Hi

    PeerGuardian uses a driver that sits in the Windows TCP/IP stack. It filters the traffic before it reaches the ZA. The ProtoWall does the same- which I use. After the traffic has been processed by the peerguardian, then the ZA processes it.
