How to allow Ports 2078 (SSL) & 2077 in Firewall
« on: April 13, 2011, 07:05:40 AM »
Hello:

I am a newbie. So sorry for any mistakes.

I need to allow Ports 2078 (SSL) & 2077 for a single program. Can someone tell me how to accomplish this?

Thank You in advance for your help!

You'll need to edit the rules for the application:

1. Open the Comodo control panel from the system tray.
2. Select Firewall/Network security Policy/Application rules.
3. Find the application in the list, right click on the name of the application and select Add Rule.
4. Create the rule:

Action - Allow
Protocol - TCP
Direction - Out
Source Address - ANY or your MAC address
Destination Address - Enter the IP address of the site here
Source port - This is probably ANY unless you need to specify
Destination Port - Select a port range and enter 2077 - 2078

5. Click Apply

Make sure this is above any block rules for the same application.

Hello:

Thank you very much for your help! 

How do I check "Make sure this is above any block rules for the same application"?  Because I did what you said and I still cannot connect. I get the same error to check and make sure I have allowed the above named ports.

Thank You for your reply!

Can you post a screen shot of the Application rules you have and the firewall log file with the problem entries.

It should look something like the images below, with the Allow rule above any Block rules for the same application.

You'll need to add this rule to Internet Explorer, as it's the browser that's being blocked.

Edit: Just a thought, is this Webdisk? if so and I remember correctly, you might need to allow inbound connections on 2077/2078. So you'll need to forward ports in your router and create a global rule in CIS to allow inbound traffic.

Hello:

Thank You again!

Yes this is webdisk.  How do I do forward ports and create global rule?

Thanks,

Hello:

I went back and changed to IN/Out and it still does not work.

Thank You,

It's been a while since I used WebDav and I don't have an XP box to hand at the moment.

First you'll need to make sure ports 2077 and 2078 are not blocked in your router, assuming you have one. To do that, you'll need to check the router documentation. For a Global rule, just do the same as was done before but under Global rules and make sure the direction is IN.

Can you tell what the firewall requirements for the WebDiskservice.exe are? Does it need to have open ports for incoming traffic at ports 2078 and 2077?

It's possible the inbound port requirement may be unnecessary. It was several years ago when I last configured this and it was on Linux. As I recall at that time, I had to make exceptions in iptables to allow ingress for cpanel communication.
