Agreed, there is no failure. (R) However, my thought is that the average user knows little about leak/termination tests. In real life, if something like this were to happen on their computer, and the firewall appears to crash/cause a system reboot/etc, they’re going to think the firewall faulted out and they were vulnerable.
I should have worded my question more like… “Does the current Beta release address any of the termination tests that caused the application/interface to close in an emergency mode, such that that response is no longer an issue?” (but that takes up so much space…)
Welcome to the “English” side of the Comodo forums (I saw you have a post in the Chinese thread)! Are you involved with testing the CPF 2.4.x Beta? Beginning with 18.104.22.168, Chinese is included. If you are willing and able to work with the Beta in this way, you can help with improvements to that translation; I’m sure it will be much appreciated (some users have noted that there are translation issues).
I agree it is an excellent firewall! wonderful protection, my only problem is the idea that you guys are going to incorporate a HIPS system within the firewall. I hate that idea personally because i absolutely hate HIPS programs. I think you guys should like create that program separate. I hope CPF doesn’t become another over-bloated software. keep a firewall a firewall is what i say. anyway the current version is perfect, guess ill just stick to the last good version once this happens, unfortunately.
however, PC_Junkie… what you hate is what you percieve to be a HIPS product (eg current HIPS products in the market that keeps popping up alerts every 3 milisecond)… you don’t know how v3 HIPS will operate just wait and see…
Memory/security that CPF provides is unparalled. For the amount of protection we provide for the memory we use is very acceptable. The GUI component is not something that is run all the time so the memory that consumes does not represent the firewall engine memory consumption.
I agree that CFP’s memory usage and security ratio is excellent, but isn’t there a way so that when CFP start that the cfp.exe process is around like what it is when minimized? In reality, memory is not a concern for modern systems including my own, but the numbers in the Task Manager is misleading a lot of new users.
well I 'm a really a big fan of HIPS. Cuz it’s useful to id unknown viruses that comes as EXEs. I’ve had that problem with ma usb drive several times. And i don’t want another seperate piece of software running just for that. On ma system CFP only takes about 7 to 9 MBs even with the gui. And even zone alarm has that feature so this is not new in a firewall software. Why not hav all the security features included into the same application? It’s the best solution! when u think about all the compatibility issues that users face with different products!
