ZoneAlarm has blocked access to port 80 on your computer



The ZoneAlarm firewall has successfully stopped local network or Internet traffic from reaching your computer. No breach in your security has occurred. Your computer is safe.

What Happened?

ZoneAlarm blocked data sent over the Internet to port 80 on your machine from port 1602 on a remote computer whose IP address is 216.133.162.55. This communication attempt may have been a port scan, or simply one of the millions of unsolicited commercial or network control messages that are routinely sent out over the Internet. Such unsolicited messages are often called Internet background noise.

Should I be concerned?

Because ZoneAlarm is hiding all the ports on your computer, the remote computer's attempt to communicate with your computer was unsuccessful. Your computer is safe.

What should I do?

There is no need to make any changes to your settings in ZoneAlarm unless the alerts are interfering with your ability to use the Internet or your network-aware software. If you are having problems, see the paragraphs below for a discussion of some of the more common reasons for alerts, and how you can minimize them.


Technical Summary

From To
IP Address: 216.133.162.55 IP Address: 216.228.184.xxx
Host Name: Host Name:
Port: 1602 Port: 80
Program: File Name:



Detailed Explanation

The rest of this page discusses some possible causes of this alert.

The connection attempt that caused this alert was probably harmless. The most likely scenarios are:

  • The communication may have been a legitimate attempt by your ISP, a news server, a mail server, or other service provider to authenticate your IP address for the purpose of providing services you requested. ZoneAlarm usually allows authentication to take place; but this attempt may have come from a different computer from the one you originally contacted for services, possibly due to load balancing requirements in the provider organization.
  • You may have set up a web site or some other service such as an e-mail, FTP, news service, or hosted game to provide services that require an Internet connection, without giving your web application server permission in ZoneAlarm. To give your application server permission, find the program that contains your web application in the Programs panel. On the line where this program is located, grant your web application the correct permission to act as a server. This will allow your web site to accept connection requests from the local network or the Internet, depending on which option you select.
  • You may be trying to receive online messages using mIRC, ICQ, Instant Messenger, or a similar program. In this case, the reason you received the alert is that you have not given mIRC, ICQ or Instant Messenger server permission in ZoneAlarm. Server permission is what allows a program to accept incoming connection requests from the local network or the Internet.
  • Another computer may have been the former owner of your current IP address. If you have a dial-up connection, your IP address is assigned when you dial up and is released when you hang up. In that case, there may be people out there who are trying to connect with the person who had your IP address before you did. If you have DSL or a cable modem, you may experience this phenomenon if you have just received a new IP address assignment. This happens frequently when using certain Internet Service Providers.
  • Some older versions of ZoneAlarm had a bug which caused alerts when using "active" mode FTP.
  • A server you recently visited may not have disconnected properly from your computer, and may be checking the connection again. In that case, you can safely ignore this message, because the server will eventually realize you're disconnected.
  • The Internet Lock may have engaged while you were in the middle of a download. This could happen if you have set the Internet Lock to engage when your screen saver activates.
  • There may be excessive network congestion or other network problems that prevent information from being transmitted completely and correctly.
  • A network administrator may be monitoring network performance or testing network security.
  • Someone on your network may have a computer with misconfigured network settings. The consequences of a network misconfiguration is dependent on the platform and other conditions specific to the individual network.
  • One other cause for this alert is that a new piece of network-related software may have been installed on a computer within your network. If someone is trying to learn how to use the software, it is possible that the alert was caused by the way that person is using the software. Any possible damage will depend on what kind of software is being used and, of course, on the intent of the person using it.

The most common cause of this alert is a configuration error in your copy of ZoneAlarm, or a configuration error in the server software of the computer that tried to connect to yours. Double-check your ZoneAlarm settings to make sure your copy of ZoneAlarm is configured correctly, before concluding that someone is trying to hack into your computer. If you think there is a configuration error at the other end, you can make a polite inquiry to the person on your network. In some cases, bugs in server software are a fact of life and should be gracefully accepted at face value.

If you decide to try to find out who tried to reach you on port 80, please take note of the information from the alert by either bookmarking this page or by referring to a summary of the alert data which is usually maintained in the ZoneAlarm alert log file on your computer. If alert logging is enabled, the default location for alert log file is c:\windows\internet logs\ZAlog.txt or c:\winnt\internet logs\ZAlog.txt, depending on your operating system. Alert logging may be turned on or off on the Alerts panel.
