I am having troubles with a Comodo Firewall installation on a Win 8.1. Aim is to block an application from accessing the internet when its not on a VPN connection, I’ve done that for various PCs with V5 worked flawlessly every single time, now i need to use 22.214.171.12444.
create ruleset (IN/Allow/IP DestIP, OUT/Allow IP SourceIP, Block IP), Log activated for all of those
assign the ruleset to program XYZ
When I started the program XYZ, it didnt even ask ‘what to do with this’, so the ‘allow/block/…’ windows at the bottom right did not appear (the program is NOT in the trusted application list)
After I assigned it, its like hot air. Not a single entry in the Log and the program has an internet connection no matter from what IP it is sending.
Firewall is set to ‘safe mode’, what am I missing?
the ruleset is setup correctly, i’ve done that tens of times.
the problem isnt the ruleset, every condition in the ruleset has activated ‘log’ yet the logfile doesnt show a single entry, no matter if blocked or allowed. it is as if the ruleset is ignored, not wrong.
tried unchecking ‘do not show popup alerts’, it did not show the application even after i removed it from the application rules
moved block to the top, nothing
set firewall to custom ruleset, nothing
by nothing i mean that it neither blocks, nor shows any kind of log entry (logging is activated for every single rule)
this is just bizarre, it is like cfw is completely ignoring this program. log file shows some other programs like skype, interestingly tough it is also not showing teamviewer, nor can i find an entry for teamviewer in the application list, yet it is still working - shouldnt be the case either.
earlier i found out that windows firewall was still turned on, i turned it of and tried everything again, still same result
its a absolutely clean win 8.1 pro x64 installation with all updates installed, thats it.
