I am a Windows XP user and I use ZoneAlarm Free 8.0.298.0..Download from here
Note:- I m using ZoneAlarm Free 8.0.298.0 Not Pro version....


Now the problem:-

Case 1:-
I checked my port 27960 UDP using PFPortCheck Program..(Zone Alarm ON).
^^ It shows your port is blokced...

Case 2:-
I checked my port 27960 UDP using PFPortCheck Program..(Zone Alarm OFF..shutted down).
^^ It shows your port is Open...

WTF! ZoneAlarm blocking my port 27960...HOW TO OPEN IT...?

Note:- Plz dont say ZoneAlarm sucks..use macafee blah blah stuff! stay ontopic and DONT MAKE THIS THREAD A FIREWALL WAR THREAD!

You don't need to worry about it as we are still able to connect to your servers so the port is OPEN.....
even if Zone Alarm says that it is closed.

BTW you could try www.portforward.com

You can do one thing... Uninstall ZA and reinstall it. Now whenever the prompt comes for allowing the specific port to be opened... select Allow and tick "Remember my Answer".

I try to port forward from here ^^^

See the first line of the page:-
To setup port forwarding on this router your computer needs to have a STATIC IP ADDRESS

WTF! i dont want to have a static ip address..i have dynamic ip address...i want to open port keeping ip address dynamic..help:sad:

Edit#1:-

Tutorial provided by u is based on PRO version(I am using ZA free version see the 1st post)...And i cant too find option as written in Pro version tutorial in my free version ZA...

You need to enter your modem Ip like mine is 192.168.1.34
Your modem has a IP u need to use it.......

kk! i did! nothing helped!

Crazy u didnt get my question! There is nothing wrong from Router end as when ZoneAlarm off, port is open...There is problem from ZoneAlarm end as when ZoneAlarm on, port is closed! So, the thing is that my router configuration is right but that of ZoneAlarms is wrong! <<-- Clear this thing.

btw Port Forwarding = Opening Port ??????? :-?

You don't have to buy anything.

In the free Zone Alarm firewall, go to Overview, Preferences, and click on enable proxy server. Type in your port number, and you're good to go. It seems like it can only do one port at a time, however.

But Windows firewall can do more, and adds UDP and TCP options. Go to Control Panel, Windows Firewall, Security Center, Exceptions, and Add Port. To be even safer, click on go to "change scope" and add the IP addresses of those you wish to play with.

There is no reason anyone should have to pay any money for a firewall to protect them while playing games (unless you want the new fangled thing that detects which game you're playing and inputs the ports for you).

To forward ports in ZA go to Firewall>Internet Zone Security>Custom then click Allow incoming UDP ports, type port you want to forward and Apply. Repeat the same for Allow Outgoing UDP ports. Do the same for TCP ports.
