I’ve had problems in the past with hackers who brute force logins and I’ve updated the security policy but it doesn’t help.
In the past I have used Comodo and have been very amazed by how well it secures a machine.
I have to connect to this machine over the internet so I need a way to start comodo to allow all or I will be locked out of the machine.
Right-Click on the FW systray icon, select Adjust Security Level, and Allow All. This should only be done for testing/troubleshooting purposes, or in your case, something else. Why would you want to risk it and allow all, if I may ask?
let me explain. If I reboot the machine after installing the firewall it will block all incoming ports. What I am trying to do is configure the firewall before my remote desktop connection is shutdown by the firewall. I cannot access the machine directly, only through remote desktop. So how can I configure it without it locking me out?
Have you tried accessing the FW GUI after installing, but before rebooting? I’ve never tried this, so I don’t know if it would work or not. If you can, perhaps you can configure it prior to reboot, so that you can access it after boot.
As far as I’m aware… CFP 2.4 does not support either remote installation or configuration. But, it is on the Wish List & Melih (the CEO) did say that they would address this in the future… although it isn’t clear if he meant CFP 3 beta (due today), probably not… is my guess.
Edit: PS we tried very hard to get this working, no matter what we tried CFP defeated us on the reboot.
I followed your instructions and didn’t reboot until I changed the registry.
It rebooted in allow all mode then I updated the applications and opened the specific ports
needed and made sure that everything was configured properly before turning the firewall to
I got scared for a second after it went life cause it shut down my connection but I reconnected
I do have a question:
Is there a way to stop/block someone who connects to remote desktop and has numerous failed logins? I’ve had a few hacker problems on this site.
Btw I would love to see Comodo add an option to allow all after reboot.
You could make a network monitor rule for RDP but restrict it, based on IPs or a zone. If there is only supposed to be one remote connection (you) and you have a static IP, create the rule selecting the “Exclude” option but include your IP address. This will block every IP execpt yours.
