If i am blocking IP in any, will i get these pop ups?
Is it another workaround to block and remember each question window?
As long as i am working on a long term config, i dont care to answer several questions.
An “automatized” add to this workaround could be a bottom firewall rule: Block any process any.
This rule must be changed for making “new rules by question windows” (if not made manually).
Well, comodo will be even more similar to my old firewall then
There are several different problems, at least there were. IPv6 inbound connections are not filtered correctly, if at all. Outbound ICMPv6 requests, of various types, are generated for virtually all applications unnecessarily. however, as I suggested in the thread I linked to, these can be catered for in a generic rule for the ‘all applications’ group.
In all honesty, if you don’t have a specific requirement for IPv6, either disable it (I don’t personally recommend this) don’t filter, or use Windows 7/8 firewall.
At one point I used to recommend disabling IPv6 completely, however, I’ve since discovered that doing so can cause issues. If you don’t need IPv6, it’s better to just disable the tunnelling components.
To disable the tunnelling features simply copy and paste the following in an elevated command prompt:
netsh interface ipv6 set privacy state=disable (If you have native IPv6 you may want to keep this enabled)
netsh interface ipv6 6to4 set state state=disabled
netsh interface ipv6 isatap set state state=disabled
netsh interface ipv6 set teredo disabled
If you’re using XP, unless you’ve specifically activated the IPv6 stack, it’s unnecessary to worry about it.
As far as problems are concerned, IPv6, under Windows Vista+ is part of tcpip.sys, unlike XP where it’s a separate component. Moreover, Microsoft have made IPv6 an integral part of a number of services, such as Homegroups, Direct Access, remote assistance etc. so disabling Ipv6 will/can cause connectivity issues at the least. There can also potential connectivity issues if you have a poorly configured dual stack client when visiting dual stack websites, as IPv6 connections are favoured over their IPv4 counterparts. Outside the typical ‘home’ user, there are known issues in the domain environment with clients with IPv6 disabled.
