My firewall got notices me about everything, please help any

Unread postby lefHefirori » Wed Sep 09, 2009 8:47 pm

Hi

I am a blonde when it comes to PC stuff. I ordered a zonealarm...application, that was from the school I went to. And after that and a full virus scan, I could no longer use opera or jabber messenger. I got rid of them and downloaded them again, restarted my mac a few times, but nothing is working. I keep getting a message that something needs to be done with my fire wall and HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP ports.

Help any of you?

Restarted your Mac a few times? What do you mean? Are you doing this in an emulated environment such as Parallels, or did you install Windows with Boot Camp?

Zone Alarm, IIRC, should notify you when it blocks something, giving you the choice to allow it. Check your preferences to see if there is a whitelist or a blacklist you can edit, or if there is an option to open or close certain ports.
