I hope I've not induced some groans from the regulars here... I searched the keywords "blocked outgoing traffice" and did not find anything that helped.
Here's the deal... XP - SP3, AVG antivirus. New build...
Running 188.8.131.527.000 (which I also run on 2 other pc's with no problem...is the fact that I'm running an older version an even bigger groaner than asking a question that has likely been kicked around more than Pele's old routines?)
I have the settings EXACTLY the same from one PC to the other, and I can't "get out". ZoneAlarm can't get out and I continue to get a message that "Zone alarm has prevented connection to X and Such from your computer" (loosely translated) I have to shut down ZA to get to the internet. I have set my zones the VERY SAME as another PC, as I mentioned...
I don't get it... I've used ZA for years.
Although, I have to admit I'm a bit of a dwarf in ZA knowledge...being a ZA user for years does not parlay into skillful use.
I've always looked at firewalls with a bit of belief that there's a bit of sorcery involved, eye of newt and all that... from the many hours spent scratching my head wondering *which* setting was tripping me up.
So, I've cast off the superstition and decided to educate myself by asking the experts.
I look forward to learning more, and thanks in advance for any and all help.
