    Default Left 4 Dead Dedicated Server

    Hi there,

    I have a problem with when I set up my dedicated server and having Zone Alarm open. It seems nobody can connect to my server even tho I have set all the right ports on my router (once I shut down Zone Alarm then people can connect to my server).

    I have allowed permission in ZA for both client and server (the 4 check marks) on the on the program that is the dedicated server. ZA didn't asked me for any other permissions when I set up the dedicated server.

    So why when I keep ZA on nobody can make a connection to my server.

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

    Hi!

    as far as I know ZA products do not support server related machines.
    ZA is strictly for home use.

    May be you can contact ZA technical support at: www.zonealarm.com/tsform

    Here is what I found out on Checkpoints ZA Support Web-Page..http://server.iad.liveperson.net/hc/...mp;action=view<DIV class=faqanswer><P class=faqanswer>

    Solution:

    ZoneAlarm does not support ZoneAlarm installations on serversoperating systemsat this time.

    ZoneAlarm was designed specifically for client applications on an endpoint machine.

    I was under the impression that when you create a dedicated server, people are just connecting to your computer, same as if you would host a game like Il2 or Warcraft 3 (which I have no problem with).

    As long as I give permission for this dedicated server program to accept connections for both &quot;Access&quot; and &quot;Server&quot; (Trusted and Internet) then I don't see why it wouldn't work.
    One of the questions when you have a new program requesting internet access is asking you if you allow that program to act like a server.

    Am I not correct?
