You are both unblocking and then blocking port 1035.  The block should be
501 to 1034.  A typo?

People may remember that I suffered exactly this problem when starting on

I have Zone Alarm Pro and refer my current (working) settings below:

1 Go To the "Firewall" Tab.
2 With "Internet Security" slider set to Medium, hit the "Custom" button. 3
On the "Internet Zone" Tab, "High Security Settings" - ensure "Allow
broadcast/multicast" is ticked.
4 Farther down (bottom 4 options before "Medium Security Settings") Allow
In/out UDP and TCP Ports -
I have -  80, 1035-1500, 15000, 15201, 15400, 15810, 15850, 16850 in all 4
registers (Cut this and Paste)

This will allow all FPI info In and Out!, obviously Port 80 is for other
things (ftp upload etc)

I have also taken the precaution of blocking ports 1-79, 81-499, 501-1035,
1501-1700, 2000-9999, 20000-65000 in both UDP and TCP in the Medium Risk

I hope this hlps

Regards for the New Year to all.
