T-Online Update-Client is trying to connect to the Internet or your local network

ZoneAlarm is asking you whether to allow the connection. No breach in your security has occurred. Your computer is safe.
What should I do?

The following steps comprise a cautious strategy for responding to New or Repeat Program alerts.

  1. If you do not know what T-Online Update-Client is, or why it is trying to connect, deny it permission. You can always grant permission later if you need to.
  2. After you deny permission, determine whether T-Online Update-Client still performs the functions you need it to. If it does, no further action is required. If it doesn't, use the Programs tab to grant access permission.
