I recently updated to 9.0.14 and with the new built of the application my
users using ZoneAlarm report freezes. I am using TIdPOP3, TIdSMTP and
TIdNNTP from worker threads in my application.
Searching for "ZoneAlarm freeze*" at Google gives enough hits to blame
ZoneAlarm without further investigation, but giving the advise to turn off
the firewall is nothing a potential customer might want to hear.
"I don't have problems with other programs and ZA." is one answer I get...
I'd love to code around the problem in ZA, but I have no idea how.
Does anyone know what the problem is that makes client apps freeze when SA
I don't remember which version I was using before 9.0.14. I still have the
old files, but I find no version number in them. It was a previous 9.0.x
version. I wonder if the fact that the problem arouse after updating to
9.0.14 could give a hint what ZA doesn't like by looking at the changes in
the source code.
Thanks for your help,
