Zone Alarm Setup – Video Tutorial

Posted by cotojo on August 24, 2007


Through search engine results I have noticed that there are many of you looking for more assistance with setting up ZoneAlarm Free Firewall and whether it is safe to use.

I have been using ZoneAlarm for many years, it is simple to download and install and is used by millions worldwide, it is extremely safe.

It will set up the basic permissions for internet access and a balloon will open above the taskbar for other programs asking for permission to access the internet.  The balloon also has a ‘Remember this decision’ tickbox, so once you have granted or denied a program permission it won’t ask again.

If you are setting up a wireless network, simply open the main ZoneAlarm program from the taskbar, fist go to the Firewall Tab on the left, under the main tab change the setting for Internet Zone to High and Trusted Zone to Medium.

Then click on the Program Control Tab on the left, under the Main tab, set Program Control to Medium.  If this is your first or new installation, set it to Low (Learning Mode) for about 4 weeks.

Remember to add folders etc that you wish to share on your machine to the Shared Folders in My Computer.

The easiest way to set all of this up, especially if you are a novice, is to use Network Magic.  This will set up ZoneAlarm permissions for sharing, add printers etc to your wireless network.

If you are going to use Network Magic, download and install it on each machine that you are going to connect to a wireless network.  You will have the full version for 7 days to set everything up, before it reverts to a limited version.
