i made a fresh install of CIS 3.10. Previously on this machine were installed version 3.8 and version 3.9.
I’ve got a problem with cmdagent while downloading AV sigs update.
Looking at active connections, cmdagent open a connection with a proxy server ip address I specified in previous version. I don’t use it any more Looking at Explorer 8 settings, there’s no proxy settings. Also there’s no checkmark under proxy setting in CIS options. Using “Import IE settings” makes of course a blank entry.
Why can’t I ovverride this old setting in CIS? Please note that I make a fresh install so I DO NOT import old configurations of previous CIS installation.
Cis version is 3.10.102363.531
OS: Vista SP 2 with IE 8
Is there any files under cis configuration I can edit to remove this entry? It’s a strange behaviour. For example, the update module is acting correctly not using any proxy. It’s just the cmdagent that still opens a connection with the unused proxy IP.
I fixed the problem. It was a clean update with a new fresh configuration. CIS proxy settings were empty. Also IE8 has empty proxy settings (and works great as well as CIS updater).
So I decided to make a full registry scan with RegScanner to find occurrences of proxy IP address used by cmdagent.exe. I’ve found some entries in HKEY_USERS and HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG under Software/Microsoft/CurrentVersion (maybe paths were different, I can’t remember them)
I deleted those two proxy entries in the registry and cmdagent.exe finally connected to the Comodo server
Please tell developer to have a look at registry entries and look at where cmdagent.exe takes default proxy values in the registry repository.
Hope this thread could be be of help to comodo developers.
