    Default How do I allow localhost:8080 to create a cookie?

    I am running a MoinMoin Wiki on Apache using localhost:8080. ZoneAlarm Security Suite version 7.0.470.000 will not allow the Wiki to set a session cookie. It works fine if I turn off ZoneAlarm. I can allow localhost but not localhost:8080. Privacy Advisor says it is blocking cookies from the site.

    How do I set the configuration to allow cookies from localhost:8080?

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

    Enter the 127.0.0.1 IP into the Privacy of the ZA and allow all cookies.

    The 127.0.0.1 has to be entered as Trusted in the Zones of the Firewall.

    The apache server listed in the ZA program list must be allowed the Trusted server.

    Set the Trusted Zone SEeurity slider to Low or Medium, not the High setting.

    Allow Trusted servers in the Advanced of the Firewall.

    Oldsod,

    I am not sure what you mean by "Allow Trusted servers in the Advanced of the Firewall" Could you please clarify.

    Thanks, David

    Open the ZA, open the Firewall's Main panel, click the Advanced button, and uncheck the "Block Trusted Servers".

    I have done all you suggest and the cookie is still being blocked. When I click on the login button in my browser the ZoneAlarm Privacy Advisor pops up and tells me "Privacy has Blocked Cookies". When I "Click here for details" I am shown the 127.0.0.1 entry in Privacy with all its check marks green.

    Right click the localhost (or loopback) address in the Privacy and open the Options.
    Uncheck anything that could possiblely beblocking anything.

    Also try adding something like "file://localhost/C:/*folder and file location of the software server being used*" to the Privacy and see if that helps.

    Again make sure the server application(s) has both trusted access and trusted server in the program listings of the ZA. (along with the internet access and internet server, of course).

    Check the logs in the ZA Log viewer of the Alerts and Logs for any blocked events concerning the server application.
