I hate to say that, but port opening for application names buys you
nothing in security. If you love both your Zope and security you would
rather choose some kind of linux. If its a server box and you are
only running zope on it - where should the worms and virusses come
from? Security is a concept, not just a weird personal "firewall".


PS: yes, the "process" is usually python.exe. Your admin however
should be able to look at the taskmanager for the real name or
find out by trial with that funny "firewall".

PS2: what do people use on windows to find out about network port
binding? netstat -p isnt available. Maybe some kind of lsof?
