I’ve been using Comodo for a few years. Basic user. I like paranoid mode.
I’ve been doing the same things for quite awhile and I know what I can and can’t allow, usually.
My problem is this… Recently, I’ve noticed when I use the internet ( Mozilla Firefox v3.6.8 ive always used mozilla) that i’m not getting just a few outgoing connections for one site… but like 36-70 outgoing udp connections. I am not very knowledgeable but I know that this was not happening before. I am new to cable internet. I was a DSL user before… but still… over 30 outgoing connections? most of these only list 62 bytes in and out. and most of these are listed very similar…
for example: ##.###.##.##:2254 with the same ip but the last number keeps going forever sometimes up until ##.###.##.##:2299
just for refreshing a page of yahoo mail. seems a bit overkill on outgoing udp. i mean… shouldn’t there be more incoming than outgoing? i usually don’t see that many outgoing. i feel like my firewall is being molested.
please halp me.
and also, i’ve noticed system likes to try to connect to the internet, but it’s not necessary for a working connection. I allow svchost and that’s about it. WHY does system persist in trying to connect? it’s not necessary.
