How can I configure Zone Alarm Pro Firewall?

How to set up Zone Alarm Pro
This was set up using 4.0.146.029. Verified same procedure works on 5.5.062.004

*CAUTION*
Older versions of Zone Alarm are known to cause Rollback Inconsistencies!

There are dozens of documented cases of Zone Alarm blocking DC++ even though its been properly allowed. The only fix is to uninstall ZA!!

  1. After installing Zone Alarm, start up DC++. Immediately, you will see a similar dialog with the following:

    * Check Remember this answer the next time I use this program
  2. Following that dialog, you will see another:

    * Check Remember this answer the next time I use this program
  3. That's it, DC++ should now be set up!
  4. If you're still having problems, then double check the programs security settings. Go to Program Control -> Programs and find DC++.

    Make sure DC++ has green checkmarks in Access Trusted / Internet and Server Trusted / Internet
