Comodo Firewall Pro and SSH Server

I have Comodo Firewall Pro installed.

I have installed an ssh server, freeSSHd.

I am running WindowsXP SP3.

I have specified a rule for FreeSSHDService.exe in application monitor:
Skip parent check,
Allow all activities for this application,
Allow invisible connection attempts,
Skip advanced security check
(most of these i checked just because it was not working…)

I am unable to connect via ssh, however if i turn off the application monitor I am able to connect.


What version of Comodo are you using?


Maybe i should have specified that freeSSHd does install as a service, does that make any difference?

I have no experience with v2, I stepped in at the very beginning of v3, so for now I will advice you to check out the archive v2 board: .

I will also ask the other mods to take a look at your topic.

I did not realize i was using that much older of a version, I will likely upgrade.

Will let you know how it works out for me.

Thanks for your reply!

Notice you cannot use your old configuration on V3.13. You will have to start from scratch.

Keep us posted.
