I run a Game Server and currently use McAfee Firewall v8.1. The McAfee Firewall. (that I pay for), I’m now finding does not have some of the features I need, nor does it maintain a manageable Inbound Events Log. Because of this, I am considering switching to Comodo but… before I do, I have a few questions about Comodo’s IP Address Blocking Feature and Logging of Inbound Events.
My System Setup is a follows:
1GB ECC RDRAM
Geforce Video Card
Twin WD Raptors
Here are my questions:
- Will Comodo allow me to Monitor all Inbound Events/IP Addresses?
- Are the Inbound Events captured/logged so I can I manipulate the Log relative to Banning/Prohibiting Specific IP Addresses from Accessing the Server or do I have to make seperate entires/Rules for each IP Address I wish to Ban/deny access to the Server? Also, can the List/Log be deleted daily, weekly, monthly…etc.?
- Does Comodo maintain a Seperate List/Log of Banned/Prohibited IP Addresses that I can view and can this List/Log be edited?
- Game Servers “Live or Die” based on “UpLoad Bandwidth”. Approximately what “UpLoad Bandwidth Loss” should I expect using Comodo? Currently my “UpLoad Bandwidth” averages 2.15MB.
I’ve read about 20+ pages in the Forum and as ususal, some like the Comodo and…some don’t! I would like to give Comodo a chance but need these questions address first. To anyone that responds…thanks for you time and professionalim. Regards…!
