I have tried Comodo Firewall Pro (latest release version), and although I liked it a lot, there is one issue that keeps me from using it.
A little background information: I have 3 computers at 3 different locations, and I use Remote Desktop (RDP) to connect to the 2 remote locations from whatever 3rd location I’m currently at. They are about 120 km apart, so if I lose contact with one for some reason, it’s a bit annoying and involves quite a bit of travelling.
Now to my problem with CFP. For some reason, the user interface acts really strange when I’m looking at a desktop/computer with RDP. If I change “Adjust Security Level”, the changes doesn’t update properly in the main ui. If I change Network Control Rules they dont get updated. And worst of all… no “swcurity popup windows” are shown.
So if something happens and a Comodo pops up a dialog asking for approval or something (you know how many popups you get when you’re tuning in a firewall “Do you want to let this program access the internet”), I don’t see the dialog window over RDP, and CFP blocks the use of that program. And it stays blocked until I shut down the firewall/remote computer, or travel those 120 km to click an “OK” button…
I have no idea why it’s not working. I have tried many other firewalls, and none have had any problem displaying their dialog boxes over a RDP. Has anyone else had this problem, is it a known problem, and is there a solution to it?
