Is this project active?
« on: March 31, 2016, 09:41:45 PM »
Is this an active product or is it in the process of being discontinued / abandon?
I've wasted a lot of time already.....need to know the truth. Seems riddled with bugs.  Mostly HTTPS:// sites.
DNS#2 8.20.247.20 is not resolving in Win2008R2 DNS.  Its down.
Does the version 1.0 "Production" site still work, someone in the forum suggested using those DNS numbers.

COMODO BLOCKED GOOD SITES
Seems to be SSL problem with SSL sites.  Cannot login, override does not work
Forum.Comodo.com - blocked  (really?  Yes, see screenshot) 
 
Techdata.com - major computer wholesaler - https:// login blocked

At least get the spelling right... Its PER.MA.NENT not Perminant....   


COMODO UNBLOCKED BADSITES   Epic Fail. 
Phaser block settings on HIGH in Comodo portal.  Yet...
youporn.com - Movies won't play, but OMG the ads from adjunky show enough to make you sick.   No block shown, just movies won't play.
Bing.com / search for porno videos.  Movies won't play but OMG do you want your elementary students looking at that?
Bing.com / search for porno subjects under images.or just type in boobies... Blapo  in your face dawg...don't do it while you are having lunch.....ewwwwuuuu....

Social sites blocked, set to override permanently in Comodo DNS
Facebook.com - automagically redirects to https://www.facebook.com, but Comodo does not show a block page.  Just sits there until it times out.

The competitors all suck, please make Comodo the one that works.
- opendns - sucks, no free for business, no real free control.  They find you are business, will kick you out.
- norton safeconnect - abandon?  Personal use only - very sloooooow...have seen it relay from Neustar DNS Services 54.200.58.62 - blocks good SSL sites.  sooo sloooow
- Dyndns - free, but only if you sign up for $25 a year product, and only for one home network.
- 6 recommended on lifehacker, don't waste your time.

Thank you for the feedback.  Sorry for the brutal post, it had been quite a frustrating experience.  I understand forums.comodo.com, but why would I get a warning that *anything*.comodo.com is "Malicious - Contains links to viruses ...."  It appears something is way wrong with default behaviour for unknown sites and site override not working with SSL.

Can you take some time to answer the other questions?
1.) Is Comodo going to get serious about moving this site forward, or content to be another "me too" DNS protector.  I see the site has received a lot of free press.... Is that its purpose?

2.) Is there a known issue with SSL sites that redirect to elsewhere for login?  For example, facebook.com redirects to https://facebook.com.
Techdata.com redirects to techdata.force.com (or something similar) for secure login.  Why mark at Malicious - Contains links to viruses..., when in fact it is "UNKNOWN"

3.) Will any provider be able to do anything about searching for images on Google and Bing that contain adult or other unwanted content?

4.) DNS#2 8.20.247.20 is not resolving in Win2008R2 DNS.  Its it permanently down?

5.) Is the old site DNS 156.154.70 / 156.154.71.22)  any better than the BETA site for production use, or is this reserved (obscured) for paying firewall customers to use?

I am pro-Comodo, but I manage IT services for multiple 5 - 10 million a year companies, and over 300 mom and pop shops with 5-50 employees and need a solid SecureDNS service, hopefully it can be Comodo and hopefully you can block CryptoLocker and other nefarious organized criminals out to encrypt our data for ransom.

I enabled Comodo Secure DNS in Dragon, and encountered no problems with *.comodo.com over TLS.

Login for Facebook is https://www.facebook.com/login.php If you by redirect mean from http to https, that’s intended behaviour. You should not be able to facebook.com insecurely with a browser that supports HSTS.

https://shop.techdata.com/login is the URL for logging in at https://www.techdata.com/ That’s how the site is designed.

I leave the rest for someone with more knowledge to answer.

Thank you Jowa.  Using Firefox, 44.02, accidentally type in forum.comodo.com into the ADDRESS bar (like most any end-user would do).
That is what gave the warning forum.comodo.com is malicious.  Same with Facebook, just typed in facebook into the address bar.  The problem occur attempting to hit the landing page prior to login.  (Remember, settings for the filter were on HIGH blocking social sites), Logged in to create Permniant (sic) exception and was never able to get to https://www.facebook.com even after restarting the browser.
( I did not type in https://facebook.com/login.php )  It is doubtful your average end user would think of accessing this way when a veteran 25+ year IT Guru could not figure it out without contacting tech support.    The software needs to be designed to conform with ID-10-T standard end user practices.  (ID-10-T = codename for idiot).

forum.comodo.com should redirect to https://forums.comodo.com/ It does in Dragon with Comodo Secure DNS enabled, on the virtual W10 where I tested it. I don’t know if Comodo Secure DNS in Dragon works as it does when enabled in Windows or the router (it has no settings in Dragon). Anyhow, if Comodo Secure DNS generally caused issues with *.comodo.com, I would expect lots of reports on the forum, but I have not seen that. Do you still have problems with *.comodo.com if you use default settings?

You should not have to go to https://www.facebook.com/login.php to login. That’s were you will get if you leave user name and password empty and click on Log In at https://www.facebook.com/

The product appears to be working as expected now.   :-TU The sites above are no longer generating errors.  Thanks for clearing the block for wp.me (wordpress blogger domain).
