I use a product called Sonos which allows us to play music anywhere in our house via players which attach to our stereos. The players communicate with each other via a wireless mesh network and are controlled from my PC via a desktop app.
I just installed the free version of Zone Alarm and now my Sonos desktop app cannot see the Sonos players.
- When I first ran the Sonos app Zone Alarm asked permission and I granted it.
- In ZA's Program Control | Programs The Sonos Desktop app is green checkmarks all the way across.
- If I clear the ZA log and then attempt to connect to a player via the Sonos app the connection fails, but there are NO ENTRIES in the ZA log.
- If I turn the ZA firewall OFF and then attempt to connect to a player via the Sonos app the connection SUCCEEDS (that's how I know ZA is the culprit).
So how do I get ZA to not block Sonos and why doesn't it issue warning or messages or log entries when it does?
