    Default fwpktlog.txt differs from firewall log in log viewer

    While doing a clean install and trying to determine if that erased all evidence of my previous install,I stumbled upon c:\Windows\Internet Logs\fwpktlog.txt.It seems to be a log of packet information.However, its contents differ from what I see in the firewall section of the log viewer.For example, fwpktlog.txt has many entries like this one (with my IP Xed out):
    273873 Packet DROPPED: Proto: IP_TCP Flags: 0x0000000a Src: Dest: X.X.X.X SrcPort: 80 DstPort: 1056
    Yet the log viewer shows no mention of 72.anything.
    And nothing is going obviously wrong with my network usage.What is actually in this file?
    And how are the timestamps encoded?

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

    Hi!I think these files are more for troubleshooting errors and not log of the firewall in the proper sense.But you may want to contact ZA technical support to find out precisely: Cheers,Fax
