    Default ZoneAlarm FREE Firewall blocks access to my NAS when using Windows 8

    I spent a lot of time trying to connect my NAS (QNAP 119) to my new Windows 8.1 PC. It refused to map it as a network drive - so I couldn't access it in Wondows Explorer.

    I could access the NAS via my Web Browser, and it aperad in Windows Explorer as a media station (I think it uses Twonky)

    On my Vista PC - having Zone Alarm Free installed, I had not this problem.

    Solution was to disable the ZoneAlarm firewall.

    However, since I want to use it, I am not sure how to configure it in such a way that it doesn't block my NAS access from windows Explorer. Anybody give me a hint?

    Right click the ZA icon near the clock --> About --> Copy to Clipboard --> Paste in a reply here. Mind to remove the license key (if applicable).

    Exact version of OS used? Windows 8? 8.1? Localized Language version? English version?
    Other security Programs running on the desktop PC? Laptop? Netbook?

    Since when have you are experiencing the problem? Did ZA ever worked correctly?

    The More information you post more likely other users here will be able to help and suggest potential remedial actions.
