    Default RE: That's a whole lot of action

    Hello all,

    This is aimed to all the experienced Zone users. I installed Zonealarm firewall less than 24 hours ago, I have had the internet connected for approx 12 hours all in all with the program running.. During this period, I have had 15,274 intrusions blocked and 153 high rated ones blocked. Is this normal? It seems very high to me, can you please give me examples of what or who this could be. Any help with this matter would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you,


    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
    Software Version:7.0

    Check the IP of those attacks.

    Got the DNS and DHCP servers listed as Trusted in the Zones of the Firewall of the ZA?

    Something like this...

    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 for each one.
    4. The localhost or loopback must be listed as Trusted. It has the address of
    5 The Generic Host Process or the svchost.exe listed in the Program list must have both Trusted and Internet access and it must have server rights for the Trusted Zone, but not the Internet Zone.

    Often when the router, or modem and the porvider DNS server(s) are added as Trusted, those intrusions will stop.

    If there is a SPI/NAT router or a NAT modem in front of the PC, there should be no intrusions even seen by the ZA. So then you definitely know it is the router trying to talk to the PC that is labeled "intrusions".

    Best regards.
