    Default Apache and Zonealarm 8.0.059

    I had used Zonealarm in the past on many machines, free and paid, including with Apache on XP.
    I've recently upgraded the firewall on my current system from a competitor to ZoneAlarm. However, Zonealarm blocks incoming connections to Apache (service, port 80). It doesn't even bring its normal popup asking whether to allow Apache as a server. Apache does show up in the Zonealarm program list, and I have tried setting it as super trusted and everything ticked, but Zonealarm is still blocking connections to Apache! I have tried resetting all ZA settings, and choosing full manual mode for the program list, to no avail.

    The only way I have found is to create an expert rule allowing all incoming connections to port 80.

    Is this a bug, or some type of "feature"?

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro

    Thanks. I had already done #1 and #3, and #2 and #4 fixed it. However, I wonder why, since &quot;Enable advanced program control&quot; and &quot;Enable application interaction control&quot; in the main program control settings are disabled (medium setting).

    Therefore, I assume it shouldn't have an effect
