Firewalled myself out of Remote connection

I’ve just installed the latest Comodo v3.9.xx into my remote site Win2k3 server.
The installation went fine and Comodo requested for a re-boot, which I did.

Since then, I’ve been unable to login with RDP, connect to it via VPN, check the services remotely, or even ping to it!!

This is an off-site “test” server, so I don’t really have physical access to it.
I think I may have firewalled myself out of my server!! :-[

I ran the automatic installation, but did not install Anti-virus or any of the Ask toolbars.

Is there any way I can connect into my server or disable Comodo firewall at this stage?

Unfortunately it is not possible to connect to your server remotely unless someone is there physically who can configure Comodo firewall to allow the firewall request.


I’ve got someone to disable Comodo for me at the remote site.

And I have remote access via RDP now.

What do I need to enable / disable so that I don’t throw myself out again?

I know I should use some trial & error with the manual, but I’m just a bit phobic about firewalling myself out again. I’d just like to make very sure of the settings this time.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Your Firewall is ‘Disabled’…? :o

I would have asked them to put it in ‘Training Mode’ and tried to Connect via RDP straight away.

TBH, I would have forgot about RDP and used ‘LogMeIn’ and ‘this’ instead.

That’s what I use anyway. :-TU

Comodo Firewall allows you to customize firewall security by using the Firewall Security Level slider to change preset security levels. I suggest you to set the Comodo Firewall in Training mode for few days temporarily for the first time. This will suppress all alerts while the firewall learns the components of the applications that need Internet access and automatically create ‘allow’ rules for them. The firewall will monitor network traffic and create automatic allow rules for all new applications until the security level is adjusted. You will not receive any alerts in ‘Training Mode’ mode. If you choose the ‘Training Mode’ setting, we advise that you are 100% sure that all applications installed on your computer are assigned the correct network access rights. Afterwards you can switch back to your Safe mode or Custom Policy mode.
