Comodo firewall is great, but it lacks one feature that would make it even better.
When Comodo firewall warns of a connection attempt, it tells you the remote IP address. This is great, but knowing the domain name attached to this IP would be even better for making a decision to allow or deny the connection.
It would be great if this feature could be implemented in a future version of Comodo firewall.
Edit by EricJH: changed the title to be more informative
Excellent idea. The Alert pop-ups disappear without allowing enough time to read the data and then to set the browser to do a Whois on the IP number, then to consider the information enough to make a well-informed decision. Please do this!
Yes, disappointing there is still no Comodo team response on this much-needed feature, since Omeletguy promised to push it forward in June 2009 for inclusion in v4.0, and now we are up to v5.4.x.x. I suppose that some impediments might be the complexities of locating the correct registrar these days, given the increasing numbers of regional registrars, and also the trend toward requiiring captchas on whois requests. These might be tough nuts to ■■■■■. It would be appreciated if Melih or a Comodo team member could advise us users.
You’re reading a bit more into what OmeletGuy actually said.
All he said was that he hopes it will be added, and he’d make a request in the Usability Study forum.
I’m sure he did make the post he said he would, but since OmeletGuy is just a user like you or I, making a request is all he can do. What does or does not get added to CIS is completely up to the developers.
So, what do you yourself know about how the developers received Omeletguy’s input?
P.S. Didn’t say or imply Omeletguy failed to follow through. Perhaps you are reading a bit more into what my post said. Comment on the non-response since 2009 of developer team was meant to be taken for what it’s worth, and simply as stated, it’s disappointing. And it’s perhaps understandable, to the extent that my comments on possible impediments are valid. Over and out.
