I have installed Comodo Firewall (not Anti virus) v4.1.150349.920 O/S= Vista
The entries under Application Rules are:
The entries under Global Rules are:
I can use Internet Explorer to access the internet.
BUT I cannot see how Internet Explorer gets through the Firewall. There does not seem to be any rules that grant permission?? “System” is only allowed access to the home network (named Linksys Network") not to the external internet.
I thought that it might be because Internet Explorer is from a Trusted Software Vendor (Microsoft) and hence Comodo automatically gives permission to access the internet as Internet Explorer is a deemed “safe” application. But I have Comodo on another PC and Internet Explorer cannot get internet access without the Windows Operating System being allowed internet access under Application Rules".
Can someone help to resolve my connundrum??
