Comodo Firewall 8 Quickly Block everything - Allow all - See blocked programs

In Comodo Firewall 8, this is the only way I could figure out how to temporarily block ALL internet access:
Right click on the Comodo icon in the task bar > Open… > Tasks [upper right] > Firewall Tasks > Stop Network Activity

• Could it really be this complicated? Sometimes you just want to cut off your PC temporarily from everything, couldn’t there be a simple single right click BLOCK ALL option?

• Separate question: what is the way to temporarily allow all blocked programs to access the internet since exiting Comodo Firewall still prevents programs you blocked from accessing the internet…

• Finally how do I see a list of all blocked programs in Comodo Firewall 8?

right-click the comodo in the notification area/task bar and select advanced view, then right-click the cis icon again and under firewall you will have the option to block all and when you want to regain connectivity you can set the firewall to safe mode or any other mode you wish.

• Separate question: what is the way to [b]temporarily[/b] allow all blocked programs to access the internet since exiting Comodo Firewall still prevents programs you blocked from accessing the internet...
remove the block rule for the application under firewall application rules.
• Finally how do I see a list of all blocked programs in Comodo Firewall 8?
depending on what form of block you mean, their is the blocked files under HIPS settings and you can also block with sandbox rules, but more than likely you can see the list of applications that have rules applied to them under firewall application rules or HIPS rules.

First question answer is perfect. Thank you.

Second question, to temporarily allow all, so it’s impossible?
In other words if 100 blocks of the type Firewall > Block Application are in place, users will have to remove every single block? And then… they would have to re-block all 100 again?
So there is no temporary Allow All, even if you exit Comodo Firewall?

Third question: Firewall > Block Application.
Where is that list of Blocked Applications?

Actually you could add an allow rule for the “all applications” file group and place that rule above all other blocked applications rule to temporarily unblock applications, then remove the ‘all applications’ rule when you want to go back to blocking applications.

All rules for an application that are allowed or blocked are located in the application firewall rules section under firewall advanced settings. More info about firewall application rules is available here: Application Rules, Firewall Protection, Best Firewall | Internet Security

Thank you. I am just left with the last question now.

When I click on Add, where do I click on after that, to allow rule for the “all applications”?

Click Browse > File Group > All Applications

I think I’m really close now, I have All Applications selected and now have a choice of two:
Use Ruleset
and
Use Custom Ruleset

Which of these two, would it be, Use Ruleset: Trusted Application > OK
And then just make sure that’s on top and CHECKED/UNCHECKED whenever I want to use it or not use it?

Yes you can use a predefined ruleset such as outgoing only or allowed application and make sure that “all application” rule is above all other rules, then you remove the all application rule when you want to go back to blocking applications. Checking the rule just means you have it selected so you can move it up or down or to remove it, all rules list are in affect whether they are checked or unchecked.

Does 8 not have the taskbar with option to stop network activity?

EDIT: It has, I downloaded and checked

I finally figured out the full instructions:
pfew.

Tasks > Firewall Tasks > Open Advanced Settings > Application Rules >
Right click on empty gray area > Add > Browse > File Group > All Applications >
Copy From > Ruleset > Trusted Application > OK

Make sure the just crated All Applications rule is at the top and
must click on OK and have the Application Rules window disappear for this to actually take effect.

Above poster, how did you get that screen shot, how did you get the Stop Network Activity button to appear on version 8?

…of course the problem here is that you can’t just simply CHECK/UNCHECK the option,

you have to completely remove the rule to allow all applications to go through in order to go back to normal usage…

…and then create the whole thing from the beginning every time you want to temporarily allow everything to go through?

Is this correct? If yes, that’s quite a hassle…
