    Default new to za

    decided to start using za after getting hammered with viruses, rootkits and trojans, anyway i was wondering what the recommended settings would be in the advanced settings section for the firewall, or a link to a good faq or sticky on settings

    also, should i run windows firewall with za firewall? its set as disabled atm

    thanks

    Zone Alarm is designed to run Best with the Default setting ..

    Only Run One Firewall and One anti-Virus at a time, otherwise They will Conflict or Block each other and you end up with No protection, instead of twice as much protection..

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Just One, Not Two -- Never use two software Firewalls at the same time. Completely uninstall one before installing another.

    *** NOTICE: Please note that ZASS and ZAXS do not play nice with many overlapping security tools (even if disabled).

    To troubleshoot ZASS/ZAXS issues removethe other Security programs and (if you can't live without the other Security programs - Not Recomended) - Only re-install them once you see that ZA works as it should.

    *** For example, the Following programs may not work well with ZoneAlarm, Kaspersky (KAV) or (KISS),Norton/Symantec, McAfee,AVG, Spyspweeper, NOD32, Spyware Doctor, trojan hunter, adware, SpyBotSearch & Destroy, PC tools Threat Fire, any other Anti-virus, some Anti-spyware, Registry Guard or locking tools, etc...

    Id say im definitely keepign my "surface area" down to a minimum by merely running za and avast! which seem to be running fine after sorting out a few installation issues.

    Anyway Ive left ZA at default settings; but I just had one question which Ive not been able to find an answer to after briefly perusing the FAQs.

    Ive recently allowed a program to pass through the firewall and now id like to revoke that privilege. In ZA free firewall where would I go to do this?

    Simple fix..

    Click on Program Control on Left side of ZA Menu
    Click on the Programs tab

    Find the Program listed (left Click on the Green Check Mark to see Pop up to change) and change "Green" Check marks to Blue "?" to make it Ask for permition, or RED "X" to Block access to the Internet..

    Thanks. Last question, I hope.

    Access = Inbound (information being sent to my pc) and
    Server = Outbound (information being collected and sent from my pc)

    right?

    From the ZA Help file:

    The Access column refers to a program's right to retrieve information from the Internet or networks in the Trusted Zone.

    Server allows a program to passively listen for contact from the Internet or network. Few programs require server rights.
