at least one third of internet users in china would never use comodo cis

1st that is definitely surprizing to hear offering of other products to Chinese users
Why ??? …. when there are Chinese Comodo developers (see about page)

So the Q is - why Comodo has to loose such a big market?

Is there some sort of local server in China in the 1st place?

Then, the size of downloads/updates are different matters even for those who are using dial-up there

As SolarLynx said re: mentioned cloud – that definitely & most likely was a joke :o and has nothing to do with a matter initially raised by any means

Leaving aside a substantial size of AV update, which can be changed/improved to some degree
…. why Comodo would not think about implementing Torrent protocol as many companies do?
(I mean both – the installer & AV updates)

That will be very reliable and much faster that anything even having stated Inet speed
Have you ever tried downloading Linux distros ~ 700MB and compare that to the traditional dloads ?
That’s ~4 - max 7min here using torrent & my broadband speed is pretty much average …(17-19Mbps)
Considering the number of potential users in China seeding … that would be much faster and more reliable even with dial-ups

In addition, another solution for many here & there, would be implementing “server like update”, where the server is responsible for main download(s) , but the computers that are LAN connected are fed locally from the server
The latter type is implemented already by some security & working flawlessly I may not be aware whether Comodo has something like that, so please correct me

… and so on … Some food for thoughts :wink:


Coranti is Japanese product.

You better delete the rule “Stop all the incoming connections” to allow tracert function normally or you may disable firewall a while during the tracert test.

At SiberLynx.

Rome was not built in one day nor is CIS but I am happy to see a smaller database is upcoming.

His Global Rules are fine; they are the stealth settings. Removing the block url is not needed and highly dangerous: it disables the firewall. The Global Rules when it comes to incoming traffic deal with unsolicited incoming traffic. The incoming traffic by tracert is expected traffic by the Stateful Inspection principle on which CIS and most other firewalls are based on.

Back to the issue at hand. At sdfsadfdfs. It is very unusual to see a tracerout turn up only blanks. I think a firewall in the router you are using may be playing a role here. Can you try the following? Try a ping and tracert to your router. Then do a traceroute and ping to a site anywhere on the web. Try a Chinese site of which you know it responds to ping, and

I want to know if pinging and doing a traceroute to your router works or not. And to I want to know what the ping and traecrt to three sites on the web bring us.

my ping result to is about 497ms ,to is request is request time out.and to is about 238ms,and to my router is less than 1ms.
no matter where i try to tracert,it always shows *.

you can say it’s the problem of my connection,but if comodo don’t plan to set some servers in china,he would lose the whole market.

Also in China but feels that the updating speed is just fine~
But the suggestion is good: why not set some local servers & ADs in China? It’s a very very big market

I don’t know where the problem is as of yet. I am keeping al possibilities open.

I am just trying to get to the bottom of what is happening. It could be on Comodo’s end, it could be a transit router on the web that is giving a hard time, etc… That’s why I am focusing on the tracert at the moment.

Does tracert always show * also when doing a tracert to your router? The ping address for the Symantec website is; the command looks like ping (their web site does not have ping enabled if I recall correctly).

What ISP are you using? At sdfsadfdfs: what ISP are you using and what OS are you on?

ISP? It’s China Telecom.
But I think I have something here to specify: In China, the ISP you’re using has nearly NOTHING to do with your net speed…In different places, the very same ISP doesn’t mean the same service

Thx. I am just trying to see where there are differences or similarities.

The best way to see the differences or similarities is: come to China and experience it yourself…
Nothing can make you feel better than being blocked by the Great Firewall >:-D

Is it possible for people to be able to connect to VPN and bypass The People’s Firewall of China?

Yes, VPN is an solution, but many VPNs are not stable and the speed of VPN can’t be guaranteed

Game over

I’ve tried it but it doesn’t work…

@COMODO: Is there a way to have some kind of P2P distribution for updates, like from those who are willing to give their machines for the task? I am willing to do it, to distribute updates with others.

Hi EricJH,
Is it really highly dangerous to delete the “Stop all the incoming connections” global rule for a moment?
If that’s the case, why the rule is NOT included in the default firewall global rule settings?

By the way, I’ve tested that tracert can also function normally if “Stop all the incoming connections” rule is moved down below “Allow ICMP In…” rules.

The problem shouldn’t related to the Great Firewall as it does not just affect one third of internet users in china…
