    Default Help with message - my first post!

    Hello, new user and a bit of a novice. My Daughters laptop has Zonealarm free and the message "firewall has blocked internet access to 192.168.1.10 (net bios session) from your computer (tcp flags:S). I clicked don't show again but noticed in the alert pages it kept trying to connect and firewall blocked it ?

    Now she is connected wirelessly via a router which is downstairs and this address is part of our network as I looked on my routers page. What does this mean and how can I resolve this please? She uses VISTA .

    Thank you and hello again.

    Christine

    Hi!
    it can be normal, 192.168.1.10 is probably a PC connected in your LAN brocasting on the LAN. Turn off all PCs in your LAN and check if you get the message, you should not.

    What is useful, if not there, is to add to the ZA firewal 'trusted' zone your DNS and DHCP addresses (most probably your router 192.168.1.X).

    If your VISTA computer need to share resources (files/printer/etc) with the LAN then you should set the network in ZA as 'trusted' (i.e. 192.168.1.0/255.255....etc set as TRUSTED).

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Fax, a further question if you don't mind. How do I do this " What is useful, if not there, is to add to the ZA firewal 'trusted' zone your DNS and DHCP addresses (most probably your router 192.168.1.X)."

    Thanks again as a newbie I get very confused!
