Setting up Firewalls For Canasis Help
First it is important to note that firewalls are not a "feature" or "bug" in Canasis, there is nothing we can do to automatically go around the security systems you have installed, but this information can help you set up your firewall correctly.
Note: This page is still under construction, if you have added information for your kind of firewall please share it with us so everyone can benefit.
Step 1: Which Firewall(s) Do You Have?
Click one of the firewalls below. Please note that some computers have more than 1 of the below.
If you do not know which you have, or you have one not on the list, contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) or the place you bought your computer for assistance. After you receive information from them, please contact us with a copy so we may add it here for everyone. The "ports" that Canasis uses are 23731, 23732, and 23733 (all 3 are both incoming and outgoing) and can come in from any other computer that is paging you or joining your table.
Zone Alarm is a per-program firewall. Meaning each program is allowed to use internet or not. When you try to login or enter a room normally, click yes to allow Canasis to use the internet whenever it asks.
If you did not get asked, it could be because Zone Alarm is set to "high", you need to set it to medium otherwise it won't even ask you to let Canasis use internet or not.
We are working on getting pictures for this modem, if you have this modem please contact us so we may improve these instructions for all players.
There are literally hundreds of types of connection sharing and router systems. If yours is not listed in its own section above, then you should contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) or the place you bought your sharing/router system and ask them for step by step instructions.
After you receive the information, please share it with us by emailing us from the Canasis.com website or on the Discussions Message board.
