    Try disabling the firewall when you want to play the game.

    Turn firewall off when playing a game...save yourself alot of headaches.(unless you are hiding NASA secretss on your pc, chances are no one will try to hack you.)

    I've never used Tiny, so I can't give any help on that. Is there a learning mode in it like some other firewalls? I know with ZA Pro, it has a learning mode so for example, I load quake and play online, a window popups up asking for permission to access the internet. I only need to click Yes once and it's saved.

    Other than that, maybe search for news groups concerning software security etc... I know grc.com has one.

    Tiny is a great little firewall.. I doubt very much it's Tiny causing your problems.. I do a lot of online gamiing and Tiny has only ever asked if the app should be allowed to access the net..

    I've had Tiny, Black Ice and ZA running...at the same time when playing online games. Make sure u have the game in a minimized window(not full screen) so u can see the firewall's request to U on wether to allow access to IT.:cool:

    Why not simply let the game.exe gain access to the internet in the settings of the firewall?

    This one is free and does the job very well ---> http://www.agnitum.com/products/outpost/

    Why not??? I agree ..except the game exe. request for access to internet doesn't always pop up once the game has started with ZoneAlarm, or with Tiny for that matter. The pop up is there asking for permission to IT, but doesn't make it over the game and the comp freeze's.

    why aren't you giving the game permant access to your computer?

    krom...yes, tiny has a learning curve....it's harder to figure out then other firewalls...that's because it gives you much more information.

    it's the smallest firewall I've used yet...well worth the effort
