The reason why I didn’t install Comodo 3 is because my CPU and MBO were completely ■■■■■■■. Tomorow I will finally come back with this fixed.
So,I’m asking you how to go with installation with Comodo?
Within the installation process, there were option ˝Block all incoming connections˝- however Coolio10 said on Wilders Security forums that if you block all incoming connections this maight have problems with P2P connections like Kazza, Netscape and Java I think.
OK, let’s suppose you go on youtube and watch movies in full screen or normal, if I block all incoming connections in Comodo will I still be able to see/play movies?
And what about if I download these movies in Windows Media Player, should I block all incoming connections or not???
The firewall is designed to block all UNSOLICITED incoming connections. The key here is unsolicited.
If you go to YouTube to watch a video, of course you’re going to be able to view because you got to You Tube in the first place, didn’t you?
When you request a video, YOU are starting the connection request chain. The data coming back is in response to a request that originated on your PC, which the firewall has recorded and will accordingly allow reply traffic back to your PC.
What it will block is a PC somewhere out there attempting to contact your PC without your PC having first attempted to contact it. If you’re a big P2P’er and act as an uploading node or use Skype to receive incoming calls, this could cause you problems, but otherwise, it shouldn’t be an issue.
Hope this helps,
