PHP/MySQL and Zone Alarm

P: n/a
I have a typical username/password check against mysql type logon that
Zone Alarm Pro seem to break... I haven't bought or troubleshooted
this yet, I'm hoping this is a know issue with a simple fix?? ;) :)

TIA for any insights!

Use a proper firewall!

Sorry, I wasn't clear... it's Zone Alarm at the end user, not the
server side. I can't tell them to "use a proper firewall." ;)

The advice still applies to the luser ;)

You are not being very clear about how ZA is interacting with your mysql
database, or how the luser is sending his login request.

The "luser" can always configure their Zone Alarm settings to allow
for the mysql instance to interact as a server. Dangerous but
effective.

ZA Pro never created any troubles with PHP/mysql for me, hmm. Maybe
the user one day refused to let your script access the local network
or the net, and checked the "do no ask again" option ? Also, maybe the
program control or internet or the firewall tab's "internet zone
secutiry" option is set to high, which may be where the problem come
from, but you gotta test with different settings. It would be good if
you could convince the user to temporary disable ZA to see if it's
really where it's coming from, that way you could also contact zone
labs to see if they have a couple of ideas of where it could come
from.

Roger that, I was hoping that there would be a button to push but not
surprised that there isn't. Guess I'll have to do some "work." lol!
Thanks for the input everyone, I'm grateful.
