Anyone here use the ZoneAlarm firewall on their computer and also use video streaming? I am wondering if Zone Alarm interferes in any way with getting Webcam32 to work.
I constantly have Black Ice defender on my laptop, and as a general rule, I have my linux box sending requests to my port 8888 to my laptop, and I've noticed many (so called) "port probes" on the attack list that come from many people trying to connect to my streaming cam there. Black Ice doesn't interfere - it just logs the attempted connection and then, in typical "scareware" fashion, attempts to convince you that you're under attack (thus making their software seem more valuable to you than it really is). But, I wonder what ZoneAlarm does.
