    Default Expert rules and Utorrent problem

    I have the same or similar Issue. I just recently have installed ZoneAlarm Security Suite. I had no expert rules set yet, but when I try to set a expert rule for Utorrent the computer completely freezes when I start Utorrent. I have to restart the computer to regain control.

    The Rule settings are,
    Rank: 1
    Name: Utorrent
    State: enabled
    Action: Allow
    Track: None
    Source: Internet Zone
    Destination: My Computer
    Protocol: TCP
    Description: Utorrent
    Destionation port: Other Any
    Source Port: Other Any

    Os:
    Windows Vista Home Premium Service pack 2

    Zone Alarm info:
    ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:9.0.112.000
    TrueVector version:9.0.112.000
    Driver version:9.0.112.000
    Anti-virus engine version:8.0.1.33
    Anti-virus signature DAT file version:995207680
    AntiSpam version:6.0.0.2383

    Edit: did my post got moved to its own thread?

    Hi MrFrans,

    It appears that you have older version of ZASS (9.0).

    Try updating to the latest version of ZASS (9.1).

    Hope this helps....

    I am using ZoneAlarm Free (ZoneAlarm version:8.0.298.000) version. Unfortunately I couldn't find any 'Expert' tab in this version. I am trying to use Utorrent and ZA blocks everytime the port which i want it to be opened for PTP client. There is nothing i can find to unblock this port. I also tried adding utorrent.exe in the trusted program but there is nothing i can reach to port level. Is there a way to set expert or advanced rule ? Please help.

    Not possible with the free version of ZoneAlarm.Only with the paid versions you can open specific incoming ports.

    Good to let me know. I knew what can ZA sell for free? Btw I hope your tech team is aware that Windows firewall has the following features;
    1. Add Program
    2. Adding a UDP Port
    3. Adding a TCP port.
    4. Changing the scope of Port.
    5. Configuring the ICMP port

    One million dollar feedback for your product / sales team. When you make a shirt and want to sell / donate you need to have buttons and pockets in it. Hope you guys improve in next version.
