why doesnt comodo allow RDP (windows remote desktop) even if a rule is explicitly created?
when no rule was made, and a connection attempt from my workplace to home… nothing popped up in comodo… it should of asked …
“do you want to allow the application C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe TCP connection incoming on port 3389”
(with rdp - tcp is the connection, and udp is only used if you want to stream the audio)
but nope… it didnt ask anything… so i made the rule
TCP & UDP INCOMING
but nope still doesnt work…
in the log =
Reporter :Network Monitor
Description: Inbound Policy Violation (Access Denied, IP = xx.xx.xxx. xx, Port = ms-rdp(3389))
Protocol: TCP Incoming
TCP Flags: SYN
Reason: Network Control Rule ID = 7
You could enter the IP address of the computer at work for the source address and that would only allow your work computer to connect. If it is not a static IP then you could use a range of addresses. Unless the PC gets unplugged frequently then the PC would most likely keep the same IP.
