i have just installed firewall comodo pretty good :BNC so far but i sometimes get trouble connecting to web pages is this a firewall issue? I have broadband as well. Sometimes i have to lower the security settings but i dont like doing this what else can i do? ???
To view what applications you blocked, open up Application Monitor and delete the rule(s) on those applications. Then you must restart the application. In severe cases, you may have to restart the computer as well.
As for your main question on why sometimes your webpages are blocked, it’s probably because you denied an alert on a legitimate function/program. The quickest test is to right-click on the CFP system tray icon and Allow All. If the page loads after you reload it (and the browser), then an issue with your CFP rules. If still no go then most likely something else like your internet connection or the website is down/busy.

I deleted the rules and now they are working again so thats cool, as far as the allow all go when i select allow all it reloads and i get the web page so it must be the rules you said about what do i do sorry but im all new to this! :BNC
i still get problems connecting to firefox and interenet explorer on the application rules both iexplorer and firefox are set to allow but under activity section under logs i get some things denied here is what it says on some of them
Need more info please. We still don’t know what your application and network rules look like. A maximized screenshot would help. Have you read the other link I posted above on how to upload your edited log and how to post screenshots?
Your network rules don’t have anything that block things other than the default last one, which is fine.
Your application rules also fine, but what’s at the bottom? The screenshot doesn’t show everything. As long as there are no blocking rules, they shouldn’t be the culprits.
If you’re networked with our pc’s or on a LAN, you need to run the wizard to define a trusted network: Security > Tasks > Wizards > Define a Trusted Network. (BTW, I"m going by my memory as I forgot about CFP 2.4 already! Right now I use CFP 3).
Ok, now for the biggest hint: your log. After you export it, edit it with Notepad or a text editor to hide your private IP addresses, and upload them here.
