This is wierd request for a custom firewalll just know I need it to do this…
I use a VPN. I need it to restrict internet access when VPN disconnects. Internet should only be allowed when I am on the VPN. This are the instructions I have been following for customizing my firewall to do so…
Download Comodo Firewall + Antivirus from http://www.comodo.com/home/download/download.php?prod=firewall
Install it as FIREWALL only, not Firewall+Defense, if you have the option. Also decline the Antivirus install.
Uncheck the Leak Protection box if it is there
Uncheck the options for installing the following 3 options of their addons (these may change slightly depending on the
- Comodo SafeSurf/Toolbar
- Default search provider
Uncheck System scan for Malware
Finish the installation.
Restart when propted.
Click OK for any Network Zones it finds.
Connect to the VPN. Accept default Allow options for OpenVPN.
This will also create a new network Zone that comodo will prompt you for. Make note of the network number (“Local Area Connection #X”)
Click on the Firewall tab, then on Advanced
Click on Network Security Policy
Click on the Global tab
Create the first rule
Everything is default settings except what I specify below
Description “Allow VPN”
On the DESTINATION tab, click on Single IP, put in 72.5x.14x.xxx
Description “Allow Tun”
On the SOURCE tab, click on Zone, put in the Zone that related to the VPN network you made note of earlier
Description “Allow Network”
On the DESTINATION tab, put in IP Range. Assuming you have a major brand router, put in 192.168.0.1 in the first box, and 192.168.255.255 in the second box. If you have changed your home network settings on your router to an alternate range, put that in.
Description “Block All”
Make sure the red BLOCK rule is the lowest on the list. Select it and click “Move Down” if it is not.
This should complete the configuration of the firewall. Test it by connecting to the VPN and making sure you can access the internet, then disconnect from the VPN and make sure it restricts your internet access. If you wish to disable the firewall for a period of time you can right-click on the tray icon, go to Firewall security level, and click on Disabled.
Unfortunately this is not working. Any advice on getting this to work would very much be appreciated. I need the internet to be completely restricted when I am disconnected from the VPN. If anyone is capable of helping please either post here, AIM me at jerry4553 or pm me and help me get this set up. I would be willing to compensate if you can get this for me and teach me how to do it in case my computer needs reformatting. FWIW, I have windows vista.
