Correction posted for IE Explicit Security Zone Mappings and IEZoneAnalyzer’s Zone Map Viewer


I received some questions and comments about Internet Explorer’s Explicit Security Zone Mappings and about the latest version of IEZoneAnalyzer containing the Zone Map Viewer.  I hadn’t had time to dig into the questions so they lingered, but I finally carved some time to post answers to those questions in the Comments sections of those two posts.  I also found one bug both in my write-up about the mappings and in IEZoneAnalyzer, where I had the precedence order wrong when a particular site is defined both in Computer Configuration’s and in User Configuration’s Site to Zone Assignment List.  I have corrected the content of the original write-up (also downloadable as a Word doc) and posted an updated version of IEZoneAnalyzer (v3.5.0.4).

    Thanks for the great tool!

    Find a small bug: first click on the ‘Map URL to Zone’ always gives wrong result.

    Steps:

    1. Open IEZoneAnalyzer.exe (3.5.0.4)

    2. Input ‘http://16.59.124.96:7101‘ (Intranet zone) into the URL edit box

    3. Click ‘Map URL to Zone’. It reports that it’s in ‘Internet’  Zone.

    4. Click the button again. Now, it gives the correct : Intranet.

    [Aaron Margosis]  I can’t repro.  What mechanism are you using to put it into the Intranet zone?  By default, IP addresses are always Internet.
