I have been using ZAP since 5, 5.5, and 6 as part of CA Suite. They no longer use ZA for firewall and do not support WME.So I decided to give one from ZA site a try again.
What concerns me is the changing of the IP for the internet at random.I also use a router with hardware firewall and have it set for maximum security, not using the oem IP's.
This random ZA reconfiguring of IP is confusing, but never more than recently when I installed 6.1.744.1. During its full stage the IP it detected and used ended in 0. My custom IP is .222 for the router and numbers higher for machines on internal network. My best guess is that ZA somehow got the IP of the front end of the router, the IP the MODEM sees. And when other versions were being used, it often chose the IP of the router, not the network card.
So what gives? What would be correct?
Of note is that when it expired and reverted to free version it chose another IP and this time it is the IP of the network card. That seems correct to me, but not certain.
Hardware logged an attempt by DOD last fall. I'd guess they could get past anything if they really want to, but want to make it difficult.To get stealthy, I've forwarded port 113 to nowhere, because of rules governing that port, in the hardware router. Software routers supposedly have no problem with that if set up properly, but because of the rules a hardware router will generate a return.
