Apache Server

My computer acts as a http server using port 8080.
Is there any way to configure the Comodo to prevent the blocking?

G’day,

Can you please expand on “to prevent the blocking”. We need a bit more detail to understand your issue.

Cheers,

I cannot have access to the server. But when I shut Comodo down, it’s working again. Thanks

You will need to define a zone and then set that zone as trusted.

To do this, open CFP, click SECURITY-TASKS-ADD/REMOVE/MODIFY A ZONE. Give the zone a meaningful name and specify the start and end addresses of the devices that make up your LAN (including any routers). When finished, click SECURITY-TASKS-WIZARDS-ADD A TRUSTED NETWORK. Select the name you gave the zone when we defined it and click OK.

The other PCs on your LAN should now be able to access the Apache server running on the PC that is also running CFP.

Hope this helps,

Thanks, it’s working.
But can I set it for only port 8080 to computers outside that LAN?
Thanks

Sure can. you need to set an INbound rule for TCP, ports 80 and 443 and you may need to forward those post of your router to your internal IP, if you use one.

May I ask where to set an inbound rule? Thanks

G’day,

  1. Open CFP
  2. Click SECURITY - NETWORK MONITOR
  3. Click ADD
  4. Action = ALLOW
  5. Protocol = TCP or UDP
  6. Direction = IN
  7. Source IP = ANY (You can make this as tight as you want)
  8. Destination IP = ANY (This is your PC)
  9. Source Port = ANY
  10. Destination Port = A set of Ports - 80, 443

Make sure that this rule is ABOVE the last rule in the list (This is the rule that blocks everything that doesn’t meet the criteria of the rules above it).

Hope this helps,
