I would like to be able to change the predefined policy 'Installer or Updater'.  The reason is that when I am installing programs, I don't want to be alerted on events such as file changes within \Program Files, but I do want alerts on events such as the installation of a device driver or file changes within \Windows.  I've figured out a way to do this without using the requested feature, but it's more cumbersome.

More detailed information on the Firewall alert pop-up, such as:

Source Address:Port ----> Protocol (inc. ICMP types, etc.) ----> Destination Address:Port

This is helpful when you have multiple local IP's on multi-honed systems, VPN miniports, etc.

Great work so far. Thanks.

Suggestion for the future...

Judging by the number of people needing help when something goes wrong with an Update of CFPv3 or selecting the wrong option on Alerts, would it be possible to have a 'Restore' function (similar to Windows System Restore) so that CFP could be returned to it's previous state?

I'm no programmer so I have no idea how easy or difficult this would be to do.

Also, as I'm sure has been mentioned before, is it possible to have a CFP uninstaller that removes everything, and alleviates the need to rely on 3rd party software and registry cleaners to clean the machine. Many users do not have the skill or confidence to do this and end up in a mess.

CFP, although a wonderful and effective program, gives you the impression that it is only for the computer literate and those who know something about the workings of a computer, possibly putting off beginners who would like to use it but are a bit scared of what they read on the Help forum.

That's exactly how CFP works now and has done since version 2.

Panic, I assume you mean that no traffic can get through on boot up until CFP is loaded and working?
As it should be for maximum security.  :)

Correct Mike, the SPI engine and config are active WAAAAAY before we get to see the GUI as both are initialized at the kernel layer.

Thank you for this great software

Example : when i open my ports for p2p in globale rules, this ports are open all the time but with Look N Stop you can open the ports only when the p2p software is open (you can choose any software).

P.S : I use "Block all incoming connections" in "Stealth Ports Wizard" and I have a router.

Re: Comodo Firewall Wishlist V6. Enable/Disable Application Rule
« Reply #430 on: June 28, 2008, 03:03:18 PM »
I offer to an option to Enable/Disable an Application Rule Right in the list of Application rules with Popup Menu Item.

Example of using this option.
I have three application rules:
My Web Browsers
My Ftp Clients
My Email Clients

I use all the time only My Web Browsers.
So I would prefer to keep 
My Ftp Clients
My Email Clients
DisableŠ² all the times
and Enable these rules just before using Ftp or email and disable these rules immediately after that.

« Reply #432 on: June 29, 2008, 06:06:28 AM »
Now File Groups availabale for editing only after pressing "Groups" button in the "My Protected Files" form. I offer to add shortcut "My File Groups" to Defense+ Tasks panel (Common Tasks page).

I offer to add everywhere where there is a selection an element from the list, special button (or another control element) to jump to the form where data in the list can be edited.
Example:
I am in "Application Network Access Control" form and have to select a predefined Policy. If there is no appropriate Policy at the present moment I have to close this form. Then go to the "Predefined Firewall Policies" and add new Policy. Then come back to the "Application Network Access Control" form and select newly added Policy.
I offer to add a button close to "predefined Policy" deop down list and after pressing this button goto "Predefined Firewall Policies" and add new Policy without leaving "Application Network Access Control".

An option to specify about an application that its child procersses will inherit same rights as the parent application. So if I put my browser in isolated/ restricted application security policy, all child processes started by browser will inherit same isolated/ restricted rights.

Some HIPS have a similar feature.
