Silent Mode Policy settings?
« on: September 27, 2018, 09:32:53 AM »
Hi!

During gaming with Silent Mode enabled there are instances of svchost.exe that is allowed out. On purpose I have set whole ranges of ip addresses to be blocked on requests from svchost.exe, but when there is an address that is not in the ranges blocked svchost.exe is allowed.

How can I set Silent Mode to block all as default?

Thank you.

Silent mode was once called "Game Mode" because it basically puts the firewall and the HIPS in training mode for gaming. This means it learns the behaviour of the running applications and adds automatic allow rules. It was never the point of this mode to block something by default. You can however set the firewall to choose "block" on the alerts automatically and just unblock the game through Comodo's "Unblock Applications Task". The firewall would have to be set to "custom mode" however since outgoing connections for trusted processes such as svchost.exe will be allowed by default in "safe mode" (without generating an alert in the first place).
