    Default How ZoneAlarm gets IP adress when DNS blocked?

    I have two expert rules for zones:
    1. Open port 80 for outgoing connection
    2. Block all incoming and outgoing connections.

    Also one expert rule for firefox application:
    Allow all and alert and log.

    When i start FireFox and type http://www.google.com and click open i get alert message saying "firewall allowed connection to 'google ip address':HTML" and when i type that IP address to browser it opens google page, so my qeustion how zone alarm gets ip adres for google.com when i have only port 80 open.

    Try rebooting windows and see if it will still happen.

    Did rebooting have an affect on what would be let thru? Also what all is in your trusted zone?
