after a long time of searching and comparing firewalls we decided to use comodo firewall on our 100 notebooks.
We started with comodo 2.x. There were several stability errors with that product but the updates which comes out solved the most issues.
With comodo firewall 3.x it seems so that all stability problems were fixed.
But there is a very big bug with the handling of the NETBIOS protocol.

I opened the bug-report on July the 7th and till yet I got no feedback.
I am very disappointed and a bit angry about the comodo team.
I don’t know why but it seams so that my very detailed bug-report interests nobody at the comodo team.
We have very big problems with that bug and thinking about replacing the comodo firewall.
I hope this message reaches the corresponding people at the comodo team and will force an update to solve that issue.
kaspersky says at install that comodo must be uninstalled but if u export the regkey
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\COMODO Firewall Pro]
then delete it, u can install kasperky with no prob.
then u just have to import the regkey again to the registry and all is fine.
We have literally developed our own architecture that will replace the windows one! We believe this will solve all these issues. I don’t have a time when this will be in, but its scheduled to go straight after CIS Launch.
thank you for your patience. Also, did you try Edpoint Security Manager if you are managing lots of endpoints.
