A new tutorial titled How to open ports in Zone Alarm Professional was added by Bleeping Computer. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

Though Firewalls are necessary when your computer is connected to the Internet,
they can cause problems trying to get Internet aware programs working properly.
For example, if you wanted to host a game server on your computer, unless you
configure your firewall correctly, outside users would not be able to connect
to your server. This is because by default a Firewall blocks all incoming traffic
to your computer. This causes a problem, because programs that require incoming
connections will now not be reachable. To fix this, we need to open the specific
port that the program expects to receive incoming connections on. This tutorial
will cover how to open specific ports for programs, or to open these ports globally
using Zone Alarm.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
