Thread: Security Alert and blocking from one site.

    Default Security Alert and blocking from one site.

    I recently installed Zone Alarm free download.
    I have been receiving the following security alert "The forewall has blocked Internet access to your computer (TCP Port 2869) from "my IP address"[my IP
    address] (TCP Port 4170) [TCP Flags:S].
    I can understand why I would get messages re blocking access from other computers, but why block access from my own IP address.
    Is this related to
    the following
    problem
    - I have Windows XP, and Internet Explorer 6. I have wireless connection DWL G122 and am
    using router - DI 524 .
    I have problem with one website in particular.
    On

    Rootsweb.com

    home page, I click on a link, such as
    Messsage Boards, but get message "page cannot be displayed", realise my wireless broadband connection has been disconnected.
    I repair the connection,
    refresh the page, and
    get the requested
    link.
    If I press
    another link, or press the back button to
    go back to Home page, the same
    thing happens, and I have to go through the
    same process, to restore my
    internet connection.
    When I click
    on the link from "Home"
    page to "Websites",
    which are not solely rootsweb's sites,
    I have the problem mentioned above, but,
    when I eventually enter a link, such as "Cyndi's List, the connection is
    Ok, and I can continue to move from one link
    to another within this
    website, without being disconnected. The
    same applies to some other
    links, e.g. when I press link for "UK
    and Ireland", the connection is
    broken. Within this page, I press link for Scotland and connection is
    broken, but once I get into one of the Scottish
    sites, the connection
    remains Ok, as I surf troublefree from one
    page to another.


    I have never come across this problem with any
    other site, and Rootsweb help desk cannot help in this case.
    Cannot find anything wrong.
    Can only assume therefore, problem is with either Zone Alarm or Router etc.
    Desperately need help.
    This problem is driving me insane.

    DO you have your LAN in the trusted zone?

    Sorry abt duplication, thought my thread had gone AWOL.
    Re your question - only item in Trusted Zone is Loopback adaptor.
    Only item in Internet Zone is DWL G122 USB Wireless Adaptor.
    Only recently changed to wireless connection, so very green.

    Using only one PC at present.


    Need all help possible.
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Your entry for the wireless adapter, change it to trusted zone. Then try again.
