Re: New version of Avant not working....

KYDave, Dont get me wrong eMule worked fine with ZA but having read the Help file on eMule it says it doesnt particularly like ZA & actually recommended Sunbelt Kerio!
You cant actually specify the ports in ZA unless you have the pro version,believe me ive tried.

Re: New version of Avant not working....

Must agree Zone Alarm FW excellent,only reason i changed to Sunbelt Kerio was because i can specify exact ports on eMule.
It also deals with incoming & outgoing traffic.
