i am using btornado and i want to be connectable but right now i'm not. i am using zonealarm and a d-link router. do i need zap along with the router to stay safe?



i've been to a site called portforward.com and they have a tutorial on how to get zap to work but it hasn't worked for me. does anyone have any suggestions?


thanks

BT works with routers and Zonealarm. If you're not connecting with BT there is either a setup problem or a problem with the Tracker you are trying to connect to.

I don't have to open any ports on my router and it is NOT set to DMZ.

When you try to use BT Zonealarm should ask you if you want it to allow you to connect. When you say yes you can make it for one time or forever.

Exactly what error message are you getting?

You can choose to not forward ports if your behind a router but you'll see increased speeds most likely if you foward them. Also if everyone else is behind a firewall you might not be able to connect to anyone.
