I use mIRC and I've given it full access in my Firewall (ZoneAlarm free edition) settings, but whenever I try to join a server, GameSurge in this case, I get this error:

(17:47:57) * Connecting to irc.gamesurge.net (6667)
(17:47:57) -irc.gamesurge.net- [ Blocked by ZoneAlarm Security ]
(17:47:57) -irc.gamesurge.net- [ Blocked by ZoneAlarm Security ]
(17:47:58) * Disconnected

This never used to happen with the older version of ZoneAlarm, but I'm assuming this version has bug fixes or improved stability over the older one so I'm reluctant to go back to it.

Anyone know how I can fix this?

Where can I find IM security? I can't find it anywhere.
