However ZAP in certain cases classifies connections as Local when they
really aren't Local. All connections that have the same 2 octets as your
IP (ex. Your ip 126.96.36.199 -> 123.123.*.*) are also considered
In the free version, it adds your entire IP subnet as "local". You can
check this in the Advanced part of the security settings, it should add your
NIC's IP network as local. You can also remove the entry if, for example,
you're on a cable modem and your subnet includes hundreds of remote
untrusted machines. I would assume that Pro has at least the same level of
functionality, if not more.
