    If you chose to run Zope as a "service" on Windows NT/2000/XP, you can
    start Zope via the standard Windows "Services" control panel
    application.  A Zope started as a service writes events to the
    standard Windows Event Log; you can keep track of when your
    service starts and stops by reviewing your system's Event Log.  A
    Zope instance which has been installed as a "service" can also be
    run manually by invoking the *start.bat* file in the Zope
    installation directory as described above.

       Although I thought I had installed Zope to run as a service on Win2K, I cannot find a service installed
       related to Zope.
       How would I convert my manual startup Zope to a "service driven" Zope? (BTW I did find Start->Programs->Zope
       2.7.2-0) Or should I uninstall and try again?

       Who knows anything about this? 
       How to change from manual to service mode??
       I have the same situations as above, I have installed Zope as a service on WinXP Prof but it does not start
       automaticly and I can not find it in Services Control Panel.
       All is OK when I run zope in console window.

       I've installed Plone 2.1.1 on Windows XP Pro -- not Windows 2003 Server -- and I cannot hit the server from
       the network on port 80 or 8080. I tried installing Apache on the same box (after stopping Plone) and I am
       able to hit the Apache server from the network. I think there is a firewall on XP that is blocking traffic to
       the Plone server. The workaround is to tell configure XP to allow traffic to the application, but I don't
       know which application (which executable) I need.
