Zone Alarm and VPN

By RockyG ·
One of my VPN clients is using Zone Alarm, and reports some sort of conflict with the VPN. While I am not sure of the details, I was wondering if anyone had heard of any conflicts caused by Zone Alarm while using a VPN.

Zone Alarm and VPN

by Rabbit_Runner In reply to Zone Alarm and VPN

I do not know if this will be of much help. but here is what little I have learned.

ZoneAlarm is a decent firewall for personal use. My guess is that the VPN client was installed first and then the ZoneAlarm. When this is done, the ZoneAlarm does not now know how to resolve the active connection by the VPN.
Try this...
1. remove both ZoneAlarm and your VPN.
2. Reboot
3. Install Zone Alarm and run it.
4. Now install your VPN Client and set it up
5. At this point, you should get some notice by ZoneAlarm on whether you want the VPN client to access the internet. Make your choice or selections as you wish.

Hope this helps. Best of luck

When I first started to use a VPN my zonealarm would give the error message that it was unable to connect to the vpn. The fix that I used was to setup zonealarm to allow the connection. You want to add a host and then the IP address of that host. This solved my problem.

Hope this helps.
