Currently use zone alarm, free edition. My accountant is able to connect to my computer for the information that he needs. Since I installed the free version of Zone Alarm, he cannot get into my computer unless I stop Zone Alarm.
Is there a better free firewall to use with PC Anywhere?
OR
If you have advice concerning Zone Alarm, please advise.
Thanks Much!

make sure that zone alarm has pc anywhere listed as a trusted application. also monitor zone alarm when he tries to connect. there should be a log entry for that event. probably just needs to be set to allow for that event.

Hello,

I am a fan of the free Sygate personal firewall. You can check it out at:

People also like the free Kerio firewall.

Cheers,
Tom

ZA used to have a doc describing step by step. I was unable to find this for you. Instead I can tell you that pcAnywher uses port 5631 TCP to communicate and 5632 UDP for status information. You only absolutely have to allow 5631 TCP for the AWHOST32.EXE (on a host) or AWREM32.EXE (on a remote). I'm not willing to install ZA to give you exact steps, sorry... :tazz:

I have a personal dislike for almost all software firewalls. They tend to wreak havok with TCPIP stack/winsock chain etc... Symantec Client Firewall or the builtin win XP and 2003 firewall is what I use if I have to use a software firewall.
