Turning Zone Alarm off

These instructions are for turing off the free version of Zone Alarm.

If you don't like the idea of having your computer connected to the internet without a firewall running then you can unplug the ethernet cable that connects you cable modem (or ADSL modem) to your router. This will leave the router running but as there is no physical connection you will not be exposed to internet traffic.

After you have turned off Zone Alarm, check that you can now access the D-Link DNS323 unit using the Easy Search Utility, you should find that you can now map the drives.

You can keep Zone Alarm on your computer by allowing access through the firewall to the DNS323 - set up details
