    Default Free version Program control

    Under the Program control, there are two columns with Access and Server.

    Some of the program automatically getting permission under "server", some for "trusted", some for "internet"

    What does that mean?

    It is the smartdefense net. ZA connects to a central database of known safe programs that are automatically configured at user end.

    May be a good reading of the manual could help. Also to customise the setting.

    Thank you Fax.

    It says, "Permission to act as a server.."

    Does that mean my PC act as a server through that program for its own purpose?

    I think I am asking a stupid question but I don't know, but please explain.

    User manual or online help will help:

    Why these alerts occur

    Server Program alerts occur when a program on your computer wants server permission for either the Internet Zone or Trusted Zone, and that program has not already received server permission from you. A program is acting as a server when it is open to receive connection requests from other computers. Several common types of applications, such as chat and e-mail programs may need to act as servers to operate properly. However, some hacker programs act as servers to receive for instructions from their creators.


    Relatively few programs on your computer will require server permission. Some common types of programs that do are:
    • Call Waiting
    • Music file sharing
    • Streaming Media (such as RealPlayer)
    • Voice-over-Internet
    • Web meeting
    If you are using the types of programs described above that require server permission to operate properly, grant permission before you start using the program. See Granting a program permission to act as a server.
