(first a quick question…when launching some programs i.e. Mozilla firefox, comodo says firefox is trying to act like a server??? What does this mean and do I allow it?)
Ok that out the way, I want to ask about emule. This was running fine on my system but now with comodo I have a low id and cannot connect to the kad network. Even though in comodo it says emule.exe/destination:any/Protocol: TCP/UDP out/Permission: allow.
So from this I would pressume it to be working. No, the port test doesn’t work.
So please can someone help me to get emule running properly again with kad network and high server id.(kad says firewalled all the time).
Also bittorrent is the same, this is permanently firewalled now it seems—although the other day it was working fine.
[b]Constantly Same Alerts / Doesn't Remember Rules[/b]
The above thread references the server alert thingy. I’d personally leave the default Do not show alerts for apps certified by Comodo option. However, that is entirely a different topic, so let’s not dwell into that here.
1. Open CFP to full screen
2. Select Activity/Logs
3. With the mouse, right click anywhere in the main window
4. From the context menu select 'Clear all Logs'
5. Restart CFP or Reboot
5. If necessary run the problem application
6. In CFP Select Activity/Logs
7. Right Click in the Log window
8. Select 'Export to HTML'
9. Save the file with a sensible name
10. Open the file in a HTML/text editor
11. Modify your external IP Address if shown in the logs (See Note)
12. Save the file as HTML (don't change the format to plain text)
13. zip/rar the file and post on the forum
Note: When posting log details on the forum, it’s possible they may contain references you your external IP Address. (The IP Address shown in the bottom right of your forum post) In consideration of the privacy issues related to this, we ask you to modify any reference to your external IP Address in the log, using the following example:
Your Address: 123.245.789.123
Modified Address: x.x.x.123
Some things to consider:
Network Monitor rules are hierarchical, that is, they work from the top down. Therefore, a BLOCK rule placed above an ALLOW rule will take precedence.
If you’re having problems with a specific application, check Application Monitor for a rule that BLOCK’s that application.
I have some ideas, but not certain if they’ll help resolve your issue:
I see some “C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe has tried to use C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe through OLE Automation, which can be used to hijack other applications.” entries. svchost.exe is a legit Windows file and should be granted access on those OLE Automation. If there are any blocked Application Monitor rules on svchost, then delete them and restart eMule. If you have a router or networked with other computers, then you need to define a trust network in Security > Tasks > Wizards.
