4.2.2.2

Occasionally I will get an alert from ZAF announcing "The firewall has
blocked local network access to 4.2.2.2 (DNS) from your computer." The
explanation says that ZA has blocked access to Port 53 on a DNS
server. Why would ZA block this?  As far as I know, it has never
requested permission to access this server and I have never denied
such permission.

I use a Netgear router, and in order to make it work with my system, I
was instructed to configure the DNS Configuration of the TCP/IP
Properties of my network card and add 4.2.2.2 as one of my DNS
Servers.

Thanks for your help.

I had to add my ISP's  DNS IP addresses to the Local Zone in order to stop
ZA from blocking port 53.

Upgrading 4.0.2 to 4.2.5 #2
Hi Thorston, When you say customize your Bugzilla, does that include adding new "custom fields" via the Bugzilla--> Admin-->Custom fields?

If not then I can just replace the whole buzilla folder with the new version, copy in my data folder and localconfig* as per the instructions? Thanks again Pat > I had database errors where I think bugzilla > was looking for new field/table it could not find in the database. This...
