How to configure Comodo firewall 3 for utorrent.

  1. Go to : Firewall → Advanced → Attack Detection Settings → Miscellanous and disable Do Protocol analysis

  2. Go to : Firewall → Advanced → Predifined Firewall Policies and select Add…

Give a name at the new Predefined Policy for example: utorrent

Add the following rules:

Rule 1
Action = Allow
Protocol = TCP or UDP
Direction = In
Description = Rule for incoming TCP and UDP connections
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
Source port = A port range = (start port = 1025 / end port = 65535)
Destination port = the port of utorrent

Rule 2
Action = Allow
Protocol = TCP
Direction = Out
Description = Rule for outgoing TCP connections
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
Source port = A port range = (start port = 1025 / end port = 65535)
Destination port = A port range = (start port = 1025 / end port = 65535)

Rule 3
Action = Allow
Protocol = UDP
Direction = Out
Description = Rule for outgoing UDP connections
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
Source port = the port of utorrent
Destination port = A port range = (start port = 1025 / end port = 65535)

Rule 4
Action = Ask (enable Log as a firewall event if this rule is fired)
Protocol = TCP
Direction = Out
Description = Rule for HTTP requests
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
Source port = A port range = (start port = 1025 / end port = 65535)
Destination port = 80

Rule 5
Action = Block (enable Log as a firewall event if this rule is fired)
Protocol = IP
Direction = In/OUT
Description = Block and Log All Unmatching Requests
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
IP Details = Any

  1. Start utorrent. When Comodo asks you with a popup, choose Treat this application as select utorrent and enable Remember my answer.

Have a nice file sharing. Wink

A the end i start comodo and at the pop up of comodo i chosose “Treat this application as select utorrent and enable Remember my answer”.
But i have a second pop up of comodo and i don’t know what i have to do:

I have an other question:
I have router,i don’t open any ports, and µtorrent seems to work correctly, because the port of µtorrent is open. I don’t know if it’s normal or not.

Thank you for your help, and sorry for my poor english. :slight_smile:

Just made a format and now i got the same problem. Anyone have any ideas?

Hello

Up

uTorrent uses the Universal Plug and Play (uPnP) framework to open ports its self and since most routers these days support uPnP… that has most likely taken care of it for you.

Look under Firewall → Advanced → Predefined Firewall Policies and see if the uTorrent rule is there. May be you made the rule but forgot one of the Apply or Ok buttons in the process. That happened to me before.

Thank you for your anwser EricJH,

I restarted all the rules, and do all the apply.
when i start µtorrent, i have 2 pop up of comodo and i choose treat this application as “µtorrent”. it’s ok.
But after i have a new pop up of comodo concerning the rule 4 with th port number 80 as i show in my first message and I don’t what to answer to this pop up of comodo.
Can you tell me more about this?
Thank you.

I am not quite sure of the relevance of rule 4. Can you tell me where you found this set of rules. I want to see if the author left an explanation for that rule.

The rules are just above, at the begining of my post, and here you have the link: https://forums.comodo.com/empty-t15677.0.html (it’s the rules of pandlouk)
Thank you for help. :slight_smile:

Thx for the link. I have read this tutorial in the past but had no idea where to look.

I think following the rules as suggested by Ragwing make things easier for you: https://forums.comodo.com/frequently_asked_questions_faq_for_comodo_firewall/tutorial_for_utorrent_with_comodo_firewall_3-t15677.0.html;msg107875#msg107875 . Make the rules for uTorrent as mentioned under option 1. A bit less tight but less to think about.

ok i 'll try the ragwing rules and i 'll tell you if it’s good.
Thank you

I was downloading Comodo Firewall(free),but can you tell me best settings for Comodo and Utorrent.
I saw all settings for utorrent but which is the best?

Thx and have a nice day. :slight_smile:

There are many variations on the rule sets for uTorrent, however, they all use the same ‘core’

Application Rules:

Action = Allow
Protocol = UDP
Direction = Out
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
Source Port = Any
Destination Port = 53

Action = Allow
Protocol = UDP
Direction = OUT
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
Source Port = Any
Destination Port = ANY - This may be tightened by using a Port Range 1024 - 65535

Protocol = TCP
Direction = Out
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
Source Port = ANY - This may be tightened by using a Port Range 1024 - 65535
Destination Port = Any

Action = Allow
Protocol = TCP
Direction = IN
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
Source Port = Any
Destination Port = [Your uTorrent Port]

Action = Allow
Protocol = UDP
Direction = IN
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
Source Port = Any
Destination Port = [Your uTorrent Port]

In addition you may need to add the following for uTorrent to work correctly and efficiently:

Action = Allow
Protocol = UDP
Direction = OUT
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = 239.0.0.0 - 239.255.255.255
Source Port = Any
Destination Port = 6771

UDP 6771 is only used for the multicast search for local peers.

Action = Allow
Protocol = TCP
Direction = OUT
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
Source port = Any
Destination port = 80

HTTP is used by some trackers and Auto Update

Global Rules

If you have used the ‘Stealth Port Wizard’ you will need to allow uTorrent access in Global Rules:

Action = Allow
Protocol = TCP
Direction = In
Source Address = Any
Destination Address =Any
Source Port = ANY
Destination Port = [Your uTorrent Port]

Action = Allow
Protocol = UDP
Direction = In
Source Address = Any
Destination Address =Any
Source Port = ANY
Destination Port = [Your uTorrent Port]

For efficient communication also add the following for ICMP in Global Rules:

Action = Allow
Protocol = ICMP
Direction = In
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
ICMP Type = Port Unreachable

Action = Allow
Protocol = ICMP
Direction = In
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
ICMP Type = Host Unreachable

Action = Allow
Protocol = ICMP
Direction = In
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
ICMP Type = Network Unreachable

These rules are purely for CIS and do not take into consideration the use of a router.

To create these rules, either launch uTorrent so that it creates an entry(s) in the firewall Application Rules section, then stop the pplication and manually edit the rules. Or create the rules then, when launching uTorrent slelect ‘Treat this Application As’ and select uTorrent.

I don,t know where can I found this “Destination Address = 239.0.0.0 - 239.255.255.255”

Thx and have a nice day :slight_smile:

If you need to use the multicast rule, enter the detail above as an address range on the Destination Address tab.

I have to change:

If you have used the ‘Stealth Port Wizard’ you will need to allow uTorrent access in Global Rules:

Action = Allow
Protocol = TCP or UDP
Direction = In
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any
Source Port = [Your uTorrent Port]

to:

If you have used the ‘Stealth Port Wizard’ you will need to allow uTorrent access in Global Rules:

Action = Allow
Protocol = TCP or UDP
Direction = In
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = [Your uTorrent Port]
Source Port = Any

Now my utorrent is working with all your setting.
Thanks

Apologies my typo, post corrected.

I’m glad you spotted that and you got it working.

Why Comodo didn,t ask: Treat this application as select utorrent and enable Remember my answer.

What about this:

If you have just a modem, you may need to add a rule (above the last block all) to allow outgoing DNS requests such as:

Action = Allow
Protocol = UDP
Direction = Out
Description = Allow Outgoing DNS
Source Address = Any
Destination Address = Any (or your ISP’s DNS server for extra security)
Source port = Any
Destination port = 53

Is this new rule,beacuse I have only modem…can you help me?

Thx and have a nice day. :slight_smile:

It’s not absolutely necessary to have a DNS rule, regardless of connection type, providing you have the DNS client service enabled and a rule for svchost.exe, which allows DNS queries.

Thx. :slight_smile:

Can you tell me Why Comodo didn,t ask: Treat this application as select utorrent and enable Remember my answer…
