    Default IPv6 blocked by default in ZA PRO

    When I was playing with Homegroups in Windows 7, I noticed that IPv6 is blocked by default in the Firewall, Advanced options.

    Does anyone know what the reason might be considering Windows 7 is trying to push v6? I realize there are very few sites and most of the networking hardware probably does not yet support it, but it should at least be unblocked on an internal network.

    Click on ZA Tray Icon to bring up Control menu
    Click Firewall / Main page
    Click Advanced Tab
    At the Bottom of the page IP6 enabled is Un-checked

    However, You may have to Check to See if:

    A.) your ISP provider Supports IP6?
    B.) if your Connected to a Router? is the Router able to Support IP6?

    i dont know why, but if ipv6 is not set to run on that advanced settings, windows 7 keeps giving an error on computer and just keeps asking for repair. Its annoying to have "yellow flags" over windows.

    i just turn on that ipv6 and windows 7 repair properly, no more error.

    ZA should leave that ipv6 feature on in the default instalation options.

    Cheers.

    I have it disabled but I don't see any error in windows 7.
    Must be some specific settings at your end.

    Yeah, should be something specific here. I cant reproduce the error now.

    All I know the error was "teredo pseudo tunneling interface problem"

    At that time I googled it and found it was a ipv6 issue and Windows 7 wasnt able to rep that.

    Once i had the ipv6 support turned on in ZA, windows got that repaired right away.

    I was having trouble with IE8 and Network maps (wasnt working) and sometimes network was hanging on explorer.

    After that fix everyting is smooth.

    I just remembered. My windows 7 still the beta, maybe that is my specific setting.

    I need to make some $ to pay the full version. I choosed to buy ZA Extreme Security first. Its the first all-in-one security solution that dont slow my machine down (i have tried all majore software related brands).


    Thanks for ur fast answer.
