    Default Need Help. Internet Zone Security Setting



    Installed Free Zone Alarm on wireless laptop running XP.
    Can't connect to internet unless I lower the Internet Zone Security Setting to medium.
    The program recommends high.
    What I'm I doing wrong?




    Thanks

    Make sure your DNS and DHCP server IP's are in your Firewall's Trusted zone. Finding DNS and DCHP servers, etc

    1. Go to Run type in command , hit 'ok', and type ipconfig /all then press enter. In the returned data list will be a line DNS and DHCP Servers with the IP address(s) listed out to the side.
    2. In ZA on your machine on the Firewall>Zones tab click Add and then select IP Address. Make sure the Zone is set to Trusted.
    3. Click OK and then Apply and see if that works to fix it.
    4. The loopback or localhost (127.0.0.1) must be listed as Trusted.
    5. The Generic Host Process (svchost.exe) must have server rights for the Trusted Zone.
    Plus it must have both Trusted and Internet Access.

    This is a start and maybe the correct solution. If it is not working properly still, then please reply.
