I plan to install Avira AntiVir Premium, which has a local proxy for filtering HTTP traffic called WebGuard. I want to add firewall software that allows me to control which applications access the internet and that asks me for permission before a new application accesses the internet.
Does Comodo Firewall Pro 3 have this feature when using WebGuard?
If so, I would appreciate explicit configuration settings instructions to achieve this behavior.
I`m using Avira Premium at the mo with cpf.What you need to do to ensure you recieve an alert for apps trying to connect to the net is,
1.Switch the firewall to “Custom Mode” and set the Firewall/Advanced/Firewall behaviour settings/Alert settings to “High”
2.Make sure the application does not have a rule for it in “Application Rules” and when you recieve a firewall alert make sure “Remember my answer” is not ticked or a rule will be created
Thanks to all the folks who replied. Each one was very helpful. I’m really impressed with the knowledge and helpfulness of the members of this forum.
I now have the information I needed to confidently uninstall Norton Internet Security and install CFP and Avira AntiVir Premium. After participating in the thread started by Kyle, I will likely not install the POP3 and HTTP proxy/guard components of Avira. But I’m glad to know that CFP is sophisticated enough to work with them.
