Zone alarm blocking xbox , help please

  charlton200 10:33 24 Dec 2006

I have posted questions requesting help on why my computer would not connect to my xbox360 live.

I have now found the fault and it is zone alarm.
Could you please tell me how I can get zone alarm to allow the xbox live to connect.

Many thanks and merry xmas.

I think it's in ZA programs, program control and give consent to the X Box.

I have read all of your advise, thank you, and tried putting ip address's etc in trusted zone and still no luck.
There does seem to be a big conflict problem with xbox/zone alarm that I can't get over.
The only way for xbox live to work is to turn zone alarm off and then its OK but I don't think this is a good idea.

many thanks

Something you could try is to uninstall ZA/reboot and reinstall ZA...this will give you the allow/deny procedure,allowing you to allow from setup.Hopefully this may cure your problem.

I have had problems with Zone Alarm in the past it seems to be a bit too intolerant. Try Kerio that works for me.
