Anybody have a problem with or fix for crash problems with ZoneAlarm or any other firewall or antivirus program? I just updated ZoneAlarm and now it causes my whole system to crash when I start the game. Works fine with ZA shutdown. If anyone knows of a fix for this (besides shutting down ZA) I would really appreciate it.

i had a similar problem with my router (it has a built in firewall) when playing online with several games. i just called the company that made the router and they guided me through the process to open the ports to play those games. your best bet is to get in touch with the maker of the firewall, tell them the name of the game you wish to play (Battlefront in your case), and ask for directions on how to open the necessary ports and which ones to open. good luck and i hope this helps some.

{DsK}*ShivaN follow the instructions I am about to give you to the letter, and it will open the port.

1) Go to: Start -> Control Panel -> Security Center.

2) Scroll to the bottom of the box that opens.

3) Click "Windows Firewall"

4) At the top of the box that opens, select the "Exceptions" tab.

5) Click "Add Port..." button

6) In the window that opens type the following information so it reads.

Name: Battlefront Port number: 3658

7) Click Ok, and exit.

8) Run Battlefront and have fun.
