Ok, so I’m trying to network 2 computers together (eventually 3). The problem is that I have Comodo fire installed on both, and when they are enabled, the network doesn’t work. I can’t see the other computers, I can’t print… I can’t do anything. But, when I turn the firewalls off, everything goes buttery smooth.
So, my question is, how do I make comodo firewall allow connections to other computers on my network?
The router is 192.168.1.1 (netgear WNR834B)
Computer 1 is 192.168.1.136 (wired, Static IP)
Computer 2 is 192.168.1.138 (wireless, Static IP, has printer)
What exactly do I need to do to allow these to connect to each other?
Set firewall to custom policy, uncheck everything under firewall->advanced->attack detection settings (6 options) on both firewalls. Make sure there are default values “20” for tcp, udp and icmp flood. Does it make any difference?
If no, post a screenshot of blocked svhost.exe and system events on one computer (1 or 2).
Export your config, delete global rules on both firewalls, delete “windows operating system”, “system”, “svchost.exe”, “windows updater applications”, group “all applications” from Application rules (on both firewalls).
Set both firewalls to training mode. Connect for a couple of times. Then set both to custom policy and try to connect.
