    Default ZA pro firewall blocking port for aplication added in program control

    Greetings,
    first I wana say hello to the forum members and I must say I'm very pleased with ZA pro firewall. But I have an isue.
    For example ZA adds aplication for certain server in the Program control (usually *.exe). I grant access and server rights for the Internet zone for this server file. I start the aplication, but ZA pro still blocks traffic on this port, dispite the *.exe file is running. People can only join, when I manualy allow port in the customs settings for the Internet zone. But that is painfull, becouse I don't want to have intrusions on this port, when server isn't running. A good example is Remote desktop connection or Counter strike source server. If I put the Internet zone to the medium security then it works, but I like having my ports and computer
    in "stealth" mode. What could be the couse of this blocking ? Can it be solved in expert settings ?
    Thank you,
    Paladin

    Generally when this happens, you need to write expert rules to keep the ports open. There are pages on my site that explain expert rules a little better than the help file does.
    My homes are SpywareHammer.com and DonHoover.net and BleepingComputer.com
