I believe at least one of those instances slimserver is just trying to reach
out to the internet (not act as a server)... and for that one, you don't
have to okay it.

That is, Slim has to have server rights... but it doesn't need to reach the
internet (to check for updates I believe). Not like there's a big harm with
that however.

In any event, yes, it works with ZA.

Thanks,
