    Hi Dan,

    you are such a "sweet guy" :D

    I had a "friendly" word with the cable company - wow they had " great advice":

    "Hello,
    My name is Ken.

    We suggest you use a firewall to block port entry. You may change network cards on your own which will result in a new ip granted. The ip address in most cases will not change on the shaw side until upgrades are done in your area.


    We hope this information has been useful to you. "

    Guess, I have to read again the HELP file of ZoneAlarm- is a LONG time ago I did it - there goes my "spring cleaning and painting" LOL

    Thanks again for ALL the help -

    We are always glad to help!

    Regarding the ISP, you will probably get better support from them if you actually phone their support staff (they will find it more difficult to slip away so easily :D

    Marianna, since you said you have the old Zone Alarm Free product, (I guess you mean a version 2.6), I'm afraid that means you won't have any of the advanced features such as configuring system wide ports to be allowed in, or allowing/blocking specific ports on a per application basis.

    The only option in ZAF that controls if a program is allowed to listen for unsolicited traffic on some port is granting that program server rights. I suspect when you first ran each of these programs (PortPeeker and Port Explorer) that you answered Yes to the pop-up alert asking for them to act as server?

    However, there is one thing in ZAF that can interfere with your ability to grant server rights to an individual program and that is the option in the Firewall (Security) section called "Block Internet Servers". This is a global setting that overrides the granting of server rights to a program. If you don't have this checked, and you gave permission to those programs to act as server, then there isn't anything else to do in ZAF. :doubt:

    Hi LWM ;)

    Right, I clicked "yes" granting that program server rights. I had "Block Internet Servers" checked first and ran then PortPeeker or PortExplorer - I also tried it the other way around - nothing checked in "block Internet Servers" and both results are the same - I do NOT see any traffic anymore.

    Guess, I have to go on vacation so my computer can get a rest from the "hammering" o_O

    I am the "lucky one" again today with 902 hits so far :rolleyes:

    Thanks LWM :)

    Hi guys :D

    ONLY an "update" :rolleyes:

    Just got this in my mail from my ISP:

    "Important notice - Please be advised that we will be performing maintenance and network
    upgrades for your area on Sunday, June 22nd, 2003 between 2:00AM and 4:00AM PT. "

    ........hmm.....network upgrade for my area ........ maybe I am "lucky" and get a new IP ?? Hammering is still going on -

    Have a great weekend :)
