I am trying to get Boinc to run but it hangs at “connecting to localhost”. From my understanding I need to allow the BOINC core client, and the BOINC manager executables to use TCP connections on localhost.
On the Boinc (http://www.boinc-wiki.info/Firewall) wiki it says
Therefore, in a ‘software’ firewall running on the same computer as BOINC, there must be a rule that permits this conversation between boincmanager.exe and boinc.exe (usually just allowing boinc.exe to listen on port 31416).
Commonly, this is achieved by having a general ‘loopback’ rule that permits any application to speak with another application running on the same computer. A typical firewall implementation rule would look something like this **:
Protocol type: ALL
Local IP address: 127.0.0.1 (this address may be labelled as ‘localhost’)
Local Port: ANY
Remote IP address: 127.0.0.1 (‘localhost’)
Remote Port: ANY
Application: Allow ANY
Permission: Allow ALWAYS
Can anyone please help me understand how to do this in Comodo please? Thanks! O0
