Okay, I am network dummie. Qwest just brought DSL to our area so I switch from dial-up (yea!).
ZASS newest version was already installed
Standard Qwest DSL modem
Linksys Wireless router with one other home PC networked
Everything seems fine---noticed that my ZASS probe attempts counter has no longer been incrementing--which sounds good, but is that a false sense of security?
I have done the firewall tests at hackerwatch.org & shields up!.
The latter test said "Your system REPLIED to our Ping (ICMP Echo) requests", even though these were set to be blocked on my zone security settings.
Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
