    Default Zone Alarm is blocking minecraft

    Zonealarm Firewall is blocking many IP Addresses associated with minecraft.
    I have to manually allow over 10 IP addresses to get minecraft working again or fully disable zone alarm, could someone please look into this? as it has only started occuring after a recent update to zone alarm

    Hi;

    It is Sometimes very Difficult to Diagnose and fix a Computer from halfway across the Country, or around the World,
    without All the Details about your computer and Software that you failed to provide, without our ability to sit in front of your Computer monitor and see what's going on..

    is this a DeskTop, Laptop computer or Netbook.
    What version and SP of Windows?

    The More information you post the more likely users here will be able to understand the issue and try to help.


    1.) What version of Zone Alarm ? Current version is 10.1.079.000
    2.) What version of Minecraft?
    3.) are you running MineCraft in Game Mode?

    4.) have you contacted MineCraft Tech Support and advised them about your problem with the version of Zone Alarm ? http://www.minecraftforum.net/forum/155-support/

    Thank you for your Feedback..

    You are using a old version of ZA Extreme..

    Try Uninstalling ZAES 10.1.052.000 and follow the instruction blow to do a clean install of the current supported version of ZAES 10.1.079.000

    The instruction for a clean install are below,

    1. Download the latest ZA version <== click here


    2. Remove your current ZA version (in XP use Windows add/remove programs)

    3. Remove other security tools installed. Use http://www.appremover.com/ to double check no left overs are present.

    4. Clean your system and registry with the Free Ccleaner.exe
    http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/slim

    5. Download to your desktop and run the ZA removal tool, now reboot after running ZA Removal tool.

    6. Install the latest ZA version without touching any default settings.

    Have you tried to move the public zone to MEDIUM (firewall section)? Alternatively you will need to create specific rules for minecraft as discussed here.

    Otherwise you may want to ask at Minecraft support: http://www.minecraftforum.net/forum/155-support/
