A. THE BUG/ISSUE (Varies from issue to issue)
This is an old issue (see my previous 2015 post), but still present.
PLATFORM: WINDOWS 7 x64 ULTIMATE (is 100% replicable)
CIS RELEASE: 18.104.22.16865
ISSUE DESCRIPTION: “View Connections” always show in “source” and “destination” field the local ipv6 address (source - source instead of source - destination, of course).
This issue is related only to ipv6 traffic,
see pic attached, note: public ipv6 address partially masqueraded for privacy.
Can you reproduce the problem & if so how reliably?:YES
If you can, exact steps to reproduce. If not, exactly what you did & what happened:
1: Simply on a win7 x64 pc, generating or terminating ipv6 traffic (indifferently udp/tcp/icmp also), point to a remote host or local link, same issue.
2: Open “View Connections” window
One or two sentences explaining what actually happened:
In “View Connections” window all ipv6 connection report always local ipv6 address as “source” and “destination”
One or two sentences explaining what you expected to happen:
Of course this is a bug, obviously you should be able to see the correct source and destination address
If a software compatibility problem have you tried the advice to make programs work with CIS?:
This happens regardless in the same way using any ipv6 network connected application.
Any software except CIS/OS involved? If so - name, & exact version:
No other local firewall/proxy/vpn application or service running on the pc.
Any other information, eg your guess at the cause, how you tried to fix it etc:
I found this issue, identically, in all pc using Comodo CIS since my network goes to ipv6 (static ipv4 and ipv6 settings) about 1 year ago, on all pc I use (3, on 2 different network, same results)
