Thread: Firewalling IPv6

    Default Firewalling IPv6


    I need to have IPv6 connectivity on my computers and I wonder if there is any protection against unwanted IPv6-traffic in ZoneAlarm ? Have tried ZoneAlarm 7 (free ed.) on a Windows XP machine, but could not find any IPv6 settings etc. Any difference between Free and Pro regarding this ?

    I have searched around, but have yet to find a good answer to my question.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
    Software Version:7.0

    The ZA free will function and work perfectly with IPv6. No worries there. When a VPN or extra special lan conections is established, the ZA will cope with the version 6 useage.
    Stil the normal internet connection of the XP and the internet world is using IPv4, so this is probably why there is no version6 actively running on the PC.

    Best regards.

    I have now tested this, and have found that ZoneAlarm has NO proctection at all regarding IPv6 traffic.

    There is no popup asking if an IPv6-program should be allow to accees the net, or act as a server.
    Even with Internet Lock Engaged, there is no problem serving and transferring files etc through IPv6!

    BTW, what did you mean by "no version6 actively running on the PC" ??
