maybe a bug or is it just me
« on: November 23, 2008, 05:04:33 PM »
Hi Everyone,

First of all i use vista 32
firewall security custom policy mode
defense + clean pc
Comodo firewall last build

I use Comodo firewall more than a year now and never had problems
To make a long story short i tell my little problem
three months ago i bought a iphone so i had to install itunes but when installed it it didnt work
it missed some files as bonjour/mDSNRREPONDER file i have always the firewall settings like above
i tried everything but nothing did help. so i shutdown  the firewall and installed  itunes again and itunes installed perfectly. and i did it everytime there was a update from itunes.

Till three days ago there was a software update from itunes for the iphone itself  but everytime  i got error -3259
when i tried to download it. yes it downloaded it but when it finished i got that error so i searched what that code means you can read it here
so i shutdown the firewall again and tried it again and again i got that error then i uninstalled the firewall and tried it again but still that error so i thought it was a mistake from itunes and installed the firewall again .

did tried yesterday again 5 times but still that error  tried today 4 times but everytime that error
till i thought i disable defense+ and disable the firewall and so i did  and yes it downloaded and istalled it fine.

so i had the same problems with quicktime couldnt even install it but this time i disabled defense + and yes i could install it but the player doesnt work, on some webpages i can see movies but on apples page not

so i had always problems with the install of microsoftsoft silverlight and yes i disabled defense+  and it works

so can that be a bug in defense + that it block files without prompt me  or is it just me
and yes i always switched to installation mode while installing something.

Do you have windows firewall enabled?

Also, Try to add iTunes as a Trusted Application in Defense (And Firewall)
Does this solve your Issue?

I had a similar problem with Defense plus blocking without notifying me.  This problem started when i uninstalled comodo 3.0 and installed 3.5    In 3.5 defense plus gives you three options of install with the default at optimum (middle option).  When i had it at this setting it was blocking without prompting.  However, after i reinstalled comodo firewall with defense plus set to maximum (third option) the problem was gone.   

I think option 2 (optimum setting) blocks some stuff without notifying.
