bluetooth internet sharing

I just got a bluetooth USB adapter and am trying to set up internet sharing via the bluetooth. It works when comodo is switched off, but when it is turned on, the connection doesn’t work even though the bluetooth adapter is a trusted zone.

Here is what ( has to say, how would I make these rules?

"If you have a firewall installed on your PC there could be issues with making this work. If you have done all of the above and you still get DNS error messages using WebPro then try disabling the firewall and re-connect the Palm to the network and see if it works. If it does, then look into your firewall software to see how to enable the Bluetooth network connection. There is usually a way to allow specific programs and hardware to run through the firewall uninterrupted. Sorry I can’t be more specific, but every firewall setup is unique. I have read that WebPro uses port 8827, so your firewall might allow you to “Open” this port. VersaMail uses the standard port 110 and 25 for SMTP and POP3 which should already be open.

If you are using Zone Alarm I have read from others that if you set the overall setting to “Medium” security this should allow the Bluetooth LAN to access the Internet. You could also try the following. Add a rule to allow the Generic Host Process access:

Action: Permit
Direction: Either
Protocol: TCP or UDP
Application: C:\WINNT\system32\svchost.exe
Remote: Any Service
Local: Any Service
Remote: Any address

Also, open up connection from TCP/UDP port 1030-1032 to TCP/UDP port 53.

Here’s some more information from user input. In more recent versions of ZoneAlarm (v5 and above), You need to tell ZoneAlarm that my Windows machine is a “ICS/NAT Gateway”. Otherwise, ZoneAlarm blocks the Bluetooth LAN connection. To do this, go to the “Firewall” tab in ZoneAlarm, choose the “Advanced” button, then select the option called “This computer is an ICS/NAT gateway”, and then press OK.

Most important, get the Bluetooth LAN connection working without the Firewall enabled first, then go back and figure out what is required for your specific Firewall. "

Go at the “Network Monitor”, then choose the “default block rule” and click the option “create an alert when this rule is fired”.

Then try to connect again with your bluetooth. After that check the “logs” in the “activity” and post again.

Those logs will help to understand what is the problem. :wink:

i tried making an allow or block network rule, but it is not firing the alerts, and there is no logging.

Don’t creat a new one just edit the existed rule.

I’m having the same problem. I just installed Comodo because Zone Alarm wasn’t allowing my Palm to connect to the internet through a USB Bluetooth adapter. I think that it’s logging…can I post my log here so that someone can tell me what to do?
