connection speed degradation

Hi,
I am researching firewalls this evening becuase I learned tonight that my present firewall is degrading my DSL connection by 1.5 MBps (I have a 4 Mbps connection without it and 2.5 Mbps with it). Can you tell me to what degree Comodo degrades high speed connections?
Thanks!
Sue

Hey Sue,

I’ve got two rule sets that I swap in and out as needed on the test systems. With the minimal set loaded (8 NM rules, 12 AM rules) I lose around 4% of bandwidth. With the maximum set loaded (23 NM rules, 54 AM rules, ABA enabled) it drops about 8%.

Both of these figures are well within what I expected to see.

Hope this helps,

NM = Network Monitor
AM = Application Monitor
ABA = Application Behaviour Analysis

Thank you Ewen! That’s the extent of degradation I would expect.
