Question Zone Alarm and ms messenger

sponsored links

 
Ive tried zone alarm after everybody told me how good it is, and it works fine until i use the microsoft messenger service and it stops me from using webcam, it doesnt ask if i want to allow it just stops the messenger programme. Im running win xp pro (brilliant)and feel that the included firewall is **** and think that i need some form of protection, please someone help. Thanks

Have you disallowed msn messanger to act as a server in Zone alarm, If you have allow it server privalages and try the webcam again, I know if you dont allow it server rights then you cant use the file transfer so it may be the same for the webcam.
Just thought Id add that allowing messanger server rights will leave you vunerable to attatck, also using messsanger without server rights still listens out for connections which means your computer will be detected if you are scanned.
