    Default Opening a port in ZoneAlarm 7 for Windows Live

    Hi, I'm trying to get a windows live login through Dawn of War 2
    working. I want to
    allow UDP on port 3074 to allow the login because ZA is blocking it.I've enabled UPnP on my router so after I open this port I should be OK.To open a port the support doc says:
    Click on Firewall -> Main -> Internet Zone -> Custom button
    but there is no "custom" button, only an "advanced" button. Is this a feature in a paid for version that the free version doesn't have?If that's the case I guess I can always just configure my router's hardware firewall and ditch ZoneAlarm.
    I'm running:
    ZoneAlarm version:7.0.483.000
    TrueVector version:7.0.483.000
    Driver version:7.0.483.000
    L8R,Adam.

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

In ZA free you can't open specific ports.Have you allowed 'internet server rights' to the program in ZA program control?It should open the ports for the program, you may also need to do the same on the router.Cheers,Fax

    Yes, I tried giving the game server rights but it didn't seem to help. I also tried adding the destination IP address that the UDP was going to in the Trusted Zone (The Windows Live server I assume, haven't bothered to trace it) as well but to no avail.I don't think I'll need to do more on the router as it's not set up to block ports currently (I've not gotten around to configuring the firewall in it), I just had to enable UPnP to get past NAPT issues. Mind you, I don't know if what I changed on the router has worked yet as nothing has gotten past ZA yet. ^^
    Hmm... annoying. I should have tried to sort this when I had the problem during the Beta. Doh.

Or open the port in the router.Cheers,Fax

    It's the outgoing UDP connection that ZA is reporting
    that it's blocking so it's not even getting out
    to the router. I don't know if it will get back in through the router yet as the request for the Windows Live sign in isn't getting off my PC yet.I'll try turning off ZA briefly and see if it works then. I imagine it will, I saw a similar occurrence in another thread about DoW2 &amp; Windows Live issues on this board.

    Yup, I was right. I turned off ZA and the game signs in fine. Grrr. Now i have to decide whether to get rid of ZA and config my router's firewall or shell out just to get a game to run.
