    Hi,

    I need to open the following ports:
    [TCP] 40000 - 43000 included inbound-outbound
    [UDP] 44000 inbound-outbound
    [UDP] 45000 inbound-outbound
    [UDP] 45001 inbound-outbound


    to play Splinter Cell online. The only problem is i haven't a clue how to. I have the trial version of zonealarms and in the help file for unblocking ports it says to click "custom" but theres no custom button anywhere.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    According to a couple of threads at the ZA Forum, the free version does not have the ability to open specific ports. Only the Plus or Pro versions can do it.

    If you are using the Zone Alarm Pro trial, then go to the Firewall panel main tab, click on 'custom', then scroll down to 'allow incoming/outgoing TCP or UDP, check the box, then enter the port numbers you wish to open. Togg is correct that this option is not available in the free version.

    You might be successful in playing the game be lowering the internet security slider to medium while playing then back to high when your finished.
