I have four computers in my house. All are running Windows XP. All are networked. All have ZoneAlarm Security Suite ver. 6.5.737.000 installed. All were configured to allow local network access in the trusted zone. The name of the network is Particles. When I open the Firewall section of ZA, I see:
Particles - 192.168.0.0/255.255.0 - Network - trusted
Loopback adapter - 127.0.0.1 - IP address - trusted
Every couple of days, without me doing anything, ZA will pop up a window saying it's found a new network and it wants me to configure it. So I put in Particles and mark trusted zone. Then, when I'm trying to access computer #1 from computer #2, I find I've lost all network connections. When I go back to computer #1, a ZA security alert is saying that "the firewall has blocked local network access to your computer (NetBIOS Session) from 192.168.0.100 (TCP Port 3220) [TCP Flags: S]."
This happens more often than I'm comfortable with. Three out of four of these computers were wiped and reloaded freash less than three weeks ago, when I loaded ZA on them Why is this happening and what can be done to make ZA remember settings?
