I have a P4 HT, My system internet browser is Firefox, OS: XP sp2 32bit
Security Apps: Comodo Firewall Pro 3.0.16, Comodo Memory Guardian 126.96.36.199
I defined a “LAN” zone containing four entries:
- Two IP masks needed for two NICs
- 0.0.0.0 single IP address
- 255.255.255.255 single IP address
I used the stealth wizard to trust the Lan zone.
I set svchost.exe to allow all IP traffic in the LAN zone using the same global network rules defined by V3 stealth wizard.
Using these settings My PC is unable to get an IP using the BOOTP protocol if the pc get a IP in the 169.254.x.x range.
I get many udp entries with source 0.0.0.0 and dest 255.255.255.255
Another bug affects Localhost connections.
In order to reproduce this bug you need to enable alerts for loopback requests in Firewall settings.
My mail client is unable to connect to localhost (defined as 127.0.0.1 in windows hosts file) using the Email client policy which includes “Allow Access to Loopback Zone” rule.
