    Default Shut down ZA IIS 9.3.037 from command line

    Hi

    I'm using ZA IIS 9.3.037 on Windows 7 64 bit.
    I've run into problems with ZA which is making me pull my hair out.
    I need to remotely start another machine by using a Wake On Lan Magic Packet.
    I've tried several utilities and have written my own little utility. In each case, ZA blocks the magic packet from being broadcast. The programs have all of the necessary permissions set in program control. It is ZA which is causing the issue. Shut down ZA and I can turn the remote computer on. Turn on ZA, and I cannot turn the remote computer on.
    I've contacted ZA support and provided dumps and all of that good stuff.

    In the meantime, I need to find some way of shutting down ZA from the command line.
    In essence, I have to write a batch file which will
    1) Shut down Zone Alarm.
    2) When ZA is properly down, run the program which will turn the remote computer on
    3) Start ZA up again.

    I can manage steps 2 and 3, but need to find a way of performing step 1 neatly. Any suggestions?

    Cheers....

    Hello,

    Sorry, Command line switches are not support in any version of Zone Alarm.

    No guarantee switches will work nor will any support be given for them at all. No development is done for switches in ZoneAlarm.

    Hi

    Thanks for your reply.

    Unfortunately, it does not answer the question that I asked.
    I did not ask if ZoneAlarm has any command line switches.
    I asked if there was any way of shutting down ZoneAlarm cleanly from the command line.

    Any ideas?

    Sorry, you have to be More Specific in your request!

    No way to shut down Zone Alarm from Command line,
    For Security reasons.. otherwise Hackers could shutdown Your Firewall protection..


    two ways to legitimatly shut down Zone Alarm from the Keyboard are..

    1.) Right click ZA tray Icon and Click on Shut Down Zone Alarm..

    2.) Click on ZA Overview / Preference, Uncheck "Load ZA on Startup" and Reboot Computer..

    Hmm

    Bummer.

    Shutting down ZA manually is not going to work. It needs to be automated.

    Thanks for the reply anyway

    Cheers...

    Hi!
    You may want to contact ZA technical support at the link in my signature to check if there is any better option than shutting down ZA. For example, by ensuring that all components of the software used in the client PC you connect to has "supertrusted" permissions (three green bars) and full internet server access in the program control section of ZA.

    Please post back if you get a solution via technical support. It will help other users in your same situation.
