    Default Private I.P. logged

    Hello, I'm using ZASS 7.I have program control set to maximum included the advanced options and component control turned on.I also have it set to block all cookies,ad's and moblie code.The problem is when I tried the anonymous test on auditmypc.com it was able to get both my public I.P. provided by my ISP but also my private I.P. which I thought was being protected by the hardware firewall of the router and Zonealarm.Is there a way to shield the private I.P. or is there anything to worry about.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Hi!absoluely nothing to worry about... unless you use a proxy, public IP will be always revealed.Private IP is internal (e.g. 192.168.XX.XX)... cannot be reached from the internet.You are perfectly safe...Cheers,Fax

    Ok thanks for that.just one more thing.When I block mobile code on zonealarm if I temporarily tell Zonealarm to allow it,such as active x,zonealarm still blocks it and my privacy advisor still tells me it's being blocked.I usually have to turn my firewall off to allow it which is not good.Any ideas?

    Hi!how do you block and how do you temporarely allow it? From the main tab or under the site list for the site only?It may be related to refreshing the page in the web browser or the blocking may come not from the page your are loading but from a link to another location from the main page you are loading...Just push on the privacy advisor to check which site was (it will be highlithed in the privacy list) and see if it is the one you already allow to run activex or another one been called by the original site.... often mobile code do not reside on the main web page but within ads servers somewhere else.Fax

    I block or allow using individual site listings on the privacy tab.I will try your suggestion next time.One final thing( I swear:-&gt,I have generic host process cleared to access the internet yet every so often,usually when I'm not surfing the web, I get a zonealarm program warning telling me it has prevented generic host process from accessing the internet.Then when I go to use the internet I can't access it even though generic host process is still listed as allowed access in program control.Any ideas on what may be happening. Thanks.

    Hi!May be you have internet lock active?Two possibilities:1. you have some misconfiguration in your program control.... 2.your ISP sends you heartbit after XX minutes of internet/system inactivity and ZA block them with the results that you loose the connection.For problem number 1: Reset your ZA database, It will reset all ZA settings. See here: http://www2.nohold.net/noHoldCust542...rruptlogs.htmlFor problem number 2: Try to add your DNS to the firewall trusted zone....Cheers,Fax

    You're welcome!Please remember to set your Trusted Zone firewall to "medium" (default setting in ZA) otherwise adding DNS to the trusted zone will have no effects.Cheers,Fax
