AnyConnect Client and Zone Alarm

Hello all,

I have the AnyConnect client 2.2.0133 working well through Zone Alarm v.7. However, everytime I connect, the ASA does a version check and runs vpndownloader.exe from a temp internet location. This causes Zone Alarm to prompt the user to allow vpndownloader.exe to connect to the Internet. Even if the "remember this setting" option is selected in Zone Alarm, subsequent AnyConnect connections cause the prompt to come back.

I know this is caused by the location change in the temp internet folder where vpndownloader runs from.

My question is;

1. Is there a way to force Zone Alarm to ignore the path info and check only the program? OR

2. Is there a setting to stop the ASA from doing a version check on the client if it is already installed?

3. Is there a better firewall that you would recommend for use with AnyConnect?
