To begin with, maybe we should move this thread to CIS help section.
I find FAQ's and guides very helpful.Defense+Firewall
Is there a way to do this?
Why isn't there a easy way to do this
Edit by EricJH: reverted the all caps to normal case. No need to shout we hear you...
Well, since you posted it here, I suppose you'd like some response from users as well.
The steps provided were easy enough and each section has a concise description of what we'll find there. I hardly had any difficulty with it.
I'm sure thousands of people do this all the time then they get frustrated and uninstall !!
With man's overall population, I'm equally sure there are thousands of people of every category and preference you can think of. There are equally thousands of people who think otherwise and continue using the product.
Fix this major issue!
great.. happened to me again.. ok I have an idea:
How hard would it be to just make a LIST of RECENTLY BLOCKED APPLICATIONS !?
With an option to unblock..
And why don't u do it ??
Adding code in an already complex code is hardly easy. I learned that from open-source softwares. Asking the question in such a manner would be similar to saying "how much of an idiot can you be that you can't do such a simple thing?" (which strangely enough, should be told to many users instead)
No, I don't think you'd want to say that, and if you do, well, then the forum is certainly no place to say it. PM them than posting it here. I find such posts distasteful and disdainful and I'm sure others do as well (which explains the general policies and rules we have here and in every other forum).
I understand that comodo's attitude seems to be what I would call "purist of the security",
No, no. You missed the point. The response you're referring to was implying sarcasm because of jaxx0r's double standards and "confrontational attitude".
but it can happen that you click on the wrong button ... let's say you often switch from MORE OPTION to FEWER OPTION.
Or also, especially if the popups concern a safe application ... that the only thing you would want to block could be "using svchost.exe to do recursive connections ...."
And I would also add that a different icon for when D+ is in training mode or disable would be a good idea ... training mode is actually really useful to clear all the popup thing with safe application ... but you might forget to rearm if after.
That's true enough, though I haven't used comodo firewall after 5.1, I find the whitelist and the list of blocked applications sufficiently accommodating enough to easily configure the firewall (trust me, coming from me that's quite a big thing).
I suppose I'm used to doing everything alone which would explain my inquisitiveness, still, I would have to disagree with the training mode since in itself, it's a vulnerability I've seen in various computers and laptops whose users thought training mode is usable even if the system's not a fresh install. If security would be the foremost priority, I disagree. If it's user-friendliness, then sure, why not?
