I belong to a online motorcycle forum that offers a JAva powered chat room but since I went to the ZA Security suite instead of the free version I can't use the chat function as I get a msg saying I am disconnected from that IRC blocked by ZA SS
One fella told me I need to open a certain port and in the FAQ on the forum sight there is this msg"you need to configure your firewall/anti-virus to allow IRC (TCP Port 6667) communications"
I am confused as to how to open this port in ZA and where shoud it be opened (internet or trusted) and do I need to do anything to Java in the program control ?
TIA
