I am using Comodo firewall 126.96.36.199 on my Windows 2003 server. I would like to block a website from accessing my webpages. I added the following security rule but it does not block the incoming webpage.
I entered the webpage that I want to block
So obviously I am doing this incorrectly. I would greatly appreciate it if someone would stear me in the correct direction as to how to add this block.
Everytime I update I loose all of my settings and my programs/scripts/updates are blocked. I just don’t have the time to re-enter everything with each update. I’m sure I’m doing something wrong there too. Do you have a solution to this problem too?
(:SAD) Unfortunately, that didn’t work. I go to their website click on their link and my website comes up - NOT blocked. I even had someone check what I did. According to them I did it exactly as posted.
The only thing (as far as I’m aware) that may affect this would be if the rule was in the wrong place, but as you’ve mentioned it is number zero, that cannot be it as this is correct.
If you plan on updating then I think its best to continue any suggestions after - to see if the update solves the problem.
To turn on Auto update go to security>advanced>miscelleaneous (click configure)>and you will see ‘automatically check for program files updates’ & Automatically check Comodo dertified applications database’.
You can also update by clicking ‘updater’ at the top of CFP then click ‘Start’
The page I’m trying to block is a user’s html page from their RoadRunner account - not a commercial site or dedicated server. He has direct links on his html page to our server. Does this make a difference with what I’m trying to do?
I think you are misunderstanding what I mean by ‘manual update’. This is referring to uninstalling and reinstalling fresh from a new download, rather than using the auto updater of CFP. Uninstalling and reinstalling will cause you to loose all settings - auto update will not. You can back up using a script on the forums (as mentioned in a previous post).
