Why is cmdagent.exe trying to connect to 199.66.201.21 (UDP) on port 4447 and to antivirus.comodo.com on port 80?

I have automatic updates disabled.

Try disabling 'cloud' lookups - see image.

I've never seen cmdagent want to connect to AKAMAI, which is who that address belongs to. Perhaps Comodo are now using them for hosting too...

Under the More/Preferences/General make sure you've unchecked the boxes for:

Automatically check for program updates
Enable Comodo message centre

Also uncheck the boxes under the Update tab.

If you want to stop CIS from phoning out, do s I do, uncheck all the boxes I've indicated and also change the firewall application rule for 'Comodo Internet Security' to:

Block without logging
IP
Out
ANY

COMODO Firewall 5.9.221665.2197 on Windows 7 x64 sp1 with Defense always disabled and options unchecked, connects to:

  • 199.66.201.21:4447
  • 91.199.212.171:80
  • 178.255.82.1:80

... on every boot; Firewall only, antivirus is not even installed (ever). Oh, well. :)

The first one is for cloud look up and I would think it should not happen when using Firewall only with D+ disabled. Did you disable D+ using the "Deactivate Defense+ permanently (Requires a system restart)" setting? If so then I would consider that a bug and you could consider to report it as a bug.

The other two are to download.comodo.com and downloads.comodo.com. The first one I know for 100% is for program updates. The second one may be also.
