I dont know why an algebra product has to have internet connections to run.
there are two parts of the application
one is the GUI and the other is CMD-style calculating part
the GUI trys to conect somehow to this console
and i thoght this could be through a kind of loopback-area connection
But usually a program has the internet connection it needs, when you give it this rule:
yeah i use now comodo for years and i never had any thing seen as that ever before!
its realy strange!
but as you say "usualy" ... some times maybe not
Allow "Name" OUTgoing all all.
Or you can choose "treat as outgoing only".
As you dont get a question, you might have to make this rule manually.
In application rules. Specific for the program.
Avoid generalizations of permissions!
Avoid INgoing permissions!
yes i did all of what you said! ... and even generalized rules to test the behaveour... i did try with any combination... top on the rule set or below the rule set... global rules... app rules ... all at once... every combination... and of course i did set the rules back after many tests
The important question:
Does the program run when you switch off the internet connection, and disable the firewall?
It should not run then. If the problem is related to "firewall" and connections.
If the program runs, its something else.
i did now what you said
if i turn the wlan off and disable the firewall it works
if i turn the wlan off and enable the firewall it refuses to work
if i turn the welan on and disable the firewall it works
if i tuen the welan on and enable the firewall it works not
so i can enable or disable the functionality of this application by turning the firewall off or on and it realy doesent matters if i am connected to the internet or not
so i guess it has something to do with the firewall too
else i could not enable or disable the application by switching the firewall state
i think the firewall is doing also its job if i am not connected to the internet
i mean else rules for loopback-area or dedection of internet conectifity or such things would not work ... as i guess
i mean i can also enable or disable in exampe outgoing yahoo-messenger messages (if a rule is given) and this does not depend on the internet connectifity ... i can disable applications from finding the internet also if i am not connected to it ... such rules are possible and i can see this in the log ... also if not connected to the internet
so i tend to say, if i can enable or disable the functionality of a application by enabling or disabling the firewall it could be very possible that the problem has something to do with the firewall
and if internet conectifity dont affects the functionality of the application it may has nothing to do with internet it self
but still with the firewall
i mean maybe i am also wrong ... but all is pointing on the firewall state and nothing on the internet
what could be possible is that it has something to do with my WLAN connection and the way comodo protects it ... i only use WLAN and i have the cable adapter also disabled in the windows internet setings
maybe the problem could be such a thing??
maybe i should also check what happens if i plug the cable in and enable the firewall and disable the wlan
