I'm running ZA Pro Firewall 9.0.114 on Windows XP SP3.
I have a DNS server running - this caches DNS results from internet DNS servers, and also allows me to apply specific DNS for my own network. I have a problem because ZAP blocks my server when it tries to query the internet servers. The log lists the policy which blocks it as "Personal Policy" which doesn't give much info; I don't think I have any personal policies which could be blocking it. If I right click the log entry, "Add to Zone" is greyed out.
The executable ZAP blocks runs as a windows service. There's also a one-off executable (posadis.exe) which runs under a user account; ZAP lists this in Programs, I can configure its rights and it doesn't get blocked.
I want to give the service (posadissrv.exe) rights to access the internet, but ZAP didn't add it to the program list, and when I try to add it manually nothing happens.
I've added an expert firewall rule, Action "allow", source "my computer", "destination "Any", Protocol "DNS" (=port 53, which is what the blocked traffic is on) but this has not helped.
There are too many different internet DNS servers to try adding them to the trusted zone.
Thanks for any help
