I need some info: ) [Resolved]

Hello i have just installed CPF 3.0 and i have i few questions :slight_smile:

The firewall security level is set to /Custom Policy Mode\ because i want every application to ask for the access to the internet so what do you all think about the security level is it recommended or should i switch it to Learn Mode? my second question is how do i block an ip address? Should i go to Firewall/Advanced/Network Security Policy and add an ip or??? CPF 3.0 is a big change for me but i like it so far Great Job Comodo Team!

Custom Policy Mode: The firewall applies ONLY the custom security configurations and network traffic policies specified by the user. New users may want to think of this as the ‘Do Not Learn’ setting because the firewall will not attempt to learn the behavior of any applications. Nor will it automatically create network traffic rules for those applications. You will receive alerts every time there is a connection attempt by an application - even for applications on the Comodo Safe list (unless, of course, you have specified rules and policies that instruct the firewall to trust the application’s connection attempt).

If any application tries to make a connection to the outside, the firewall audits all the loaded components and checks each against the list of components already allowed or blocked. If a component is found to be blocked, the entire application is denied internet access and an alert is generated.This setting is advised for experienced firewall users that wish to maximize the visibility and control over traffic in and out of their computer.

Train with Safe Mode: While filtering network traffic, the firewall will automatically create rules that allow all traffic for the components of applications certified as ‘Safe’ by Comodo. For non-certified new applications, you will receive an alert whenever that application attempts to access the network. Should you choose, you can grant that application internet access by choosing ‘Treat this application as a Trusted Application’ at the alert. This will deploy the predefined firewall policy ‘Trusted Application’ onto the application.

‘Train with Safe Mode’ is the recommended setting for most users - combining the highest levels of security with an easy-to-manage number of connection alerts. (:NRD)

i think we should use the “train with safe mode” (all safe/certified apps by comodo are allowed)

now, where can i find something to copy-paste regarding this :stuck_out_tongue:

Easiest way to block IPs is to go to firewall/common tasks/my blocked network zones and either create a zone or add the IP addreses there.

Thanks for the help guys :slight_smile: (B)

Seems like the questions are answered, so I’ll close this thread. PM me or another online moderator if you need it opened again.
