Hi yeah I have an idea you must have some Internet security at home. I have to disable mine to make a post. I have Norton Internet security and you have to right click and disable to post. Good Luck!

Problem - When trying to make a post or reply, you receive a "this is not a valid host" error message.
You may need to make an adjustment to your Norton Internet Security Software. I believe this is included with Windows XP.

For Norton Internet Security:

1. Open Norton Internet Security.
2. Click Options.
3. Click Internet Security (or Personal Firewall).
4. Click Advanced Options.
5. Click the Web tab.
6. Click Add Site. A new site/domain box appears.
7. Enter the url of the site that you want to receive the referrer information (www.ThisSite.com) and click OK. That site name appears in the left frame of the Advanced Options window.
8. Click the name of the new site.
9. Click the Privacy tab.
10. Check the "Use these rules for..." box.
11. Change the Referrer from "Block" to "Allow."
12. Click Apply, and then click OK.
13. Click OK to close the Options window.


For ZoneAlarm Pro 3.0:

1. Begin at ZoneAlarm Pro Control Center (if ZAP is minimized to tray, simply right click on the "ZA" symbol and choose "Restore ZoneAlarm Pro Control Center".)

2. From left-hand column, choose "Privacy" (below "Alerts & Logs" and above "Email Protection".)

3. Click menu tab that says "Site List" (next to "Main", under "Help", in right-hand corner.)

4. Click on "Add" button on bottom right corner of Control Center (above "Options".)

5. A box pops up that says "Add sites to your privacy list by entering the URL below" and then asks for "URL".
Type in the URL for the site like: www.ThisSite.com

6. Click "OK".

7. Locate the site you just entered in the list of sites and right click anywhere on that line. You are given the choice of "Remove" and "Options". Choose "Options".

8. You are given the options for the site you just entered. Under the "Cookies" menu, go to the "3rd Party Cookies" section. Uncheck "Remove Private Header Information". Click "Apply" at bottom. Click "OK" at bottom.

If you actually made it through, you should now be able to post at the site you entered without having to disable ZAP or getting the "invalid host" error.

it may be called something different in your version of NPFW...

NPFW 2005 has been integrated into NAV and should not cause any alerts other than actual intrusions - if you had been having an error with this site, its that you are running a version of NPFW that includes the "cookie bug" and you should run LiveUpdate to download the latest updates to this software.

the notes written above should work for all NPFW 2003 and prior thumbsup
not quite sure how NIS 2004 is built - i never ran that version

if you need additional support for your specific version of NPFW, check this link...
http://www.symantec.com/techsupp/npf/

the problem that NPFW is having with this site is "COOKIES"... Cookies are used to track your Username/Password and which posts you have read for your current session. Without accepting cookies key feature won't work properly.

High levels of security restriction in certain browsers will automatically reject cookies. In order to use the key features of these forums, you'll need to accept cookies.

If these steps don't work you can try purging your cookies from this site using the My Cookies tool.

Thanks for the info I will try and figure it out, it's pretty annoying it comes up every 10 seconds when I disable it.
