    Default wheres dns and dchp details?

    Hi.
    My system went haywire last night and i had to pc restore.
    I downloaded zass 9.0.083 and now notice that under
    firewall> zones all i have is -
    new network - XX.11.16X.0/255.255.252.0 -network(entry type) trusted (zone)
    loopback 127.0.0.1 ip(entry type) trusted(zone)

    before problems started, i had , 2 dns and 1 dchp entry or vice versa Now they are not there.Can someone help please. Also why is there 2 ip addresses showing under new network.
    Any advice and tips on this new zass 9 is much appreciated

    Hello,
    did you had your internet connection active while installing the new ZASS? This is often why ZA cannot automatically set your DNS and DHCP in the firewall trusted zone.

    To know which are your DNS and DHCP IPs see here.
    To add to ZA see here

    Sorry, I don't understand. Yes what? Internet OFF? ON?
    Never install programs in SAFE MODE unless you are looking for troubles.

    Install procedure? Simple

    1. Install your OS from the disk. Since you don't even say your OS I will assume is XP.
    2. Activate the XP firewall in the Windows Security Center
    3. Connect to the internet
    4. Update your XP up to last patch (SP3 + all fixes).
    5. Install other software (Office package) only for the software that came in original CDs/DVDs
    6. Install ZASS, do not modify the default settings, manual update the antivirus definition and run a scan.

    It does not make your connection more secure but could make it more stable and avoid line dropping.

    You have to add the IPs as TRUSTED. You name them as you want. (e.g. DNS server, DHCP server). See the link already given to determine your DNS/DHCP and add it to the trusted zone.

    Once you have added the DNS/DHCP you should set your "new network" as "Internet" rather than trusted.
