Forgive my, my english is poor but maybe you will understand me.
When i starting program for the first time and the program wants access to the internet (for example, he (it) want to connect to one website [here any website IP + Port 80]) then if i check “remember rule” + “allow” then comodo will create one stupid Rule “Allow the program to any connection with any of the addresses” (allow all)
but i just want to allow the program to connect with one address, to which he wanted to call. How can i do this? I dont wanna EDIT rule for this program and enter the one adress manually (because i losting time for manual settings).
What i want?
when i see “hi bro, im firefox, i need to connect with 22.214.171.124, port: 80” then i want click “remember rule” + “allow only connect to this single address” and thats all! one second and i have a rule that allows the program to connect to a single IP.
How can i do this?
You need to change the alert frequency, I’m on a tablet right now so I’m taking the next part from my memory but go to the Advanced Settings > Security Settings > Firewall > Firewall Settings and change “Alert Frequency” to a setting you want (you can click the questionmark in the top-right corner next to the exit button in order to get to the help files where you can read what the different levels mean)
i guess, you dont understand me. I wanna see all (100%) firewall alerts (for trusted apps too) but when i click on the “remember rule” + “allow” button then i want created rule for just one IP. But comodo creating a rule that allows all connections for this one program. But i dont want waste time to edit one rule manually and set one IP.
The alert frequency is directly tied to the rules the alert will create, lower alert frequency equals a more blunt rule and a higher alert frequency equals a more detailed rule, I believe the setting you want is “Very High”.
For example lets say opera.exe is trying to connect to 127.0.0.1 over port 80.
With the alert frequency set at “Very Low”, when you check to remember the rule and then click allow, it will create a rule similar to “Allow IP In/Out From MAC Any To MAC Any Where Protocol Is Any”
With the alert frequency set at “Very High”, when you check to remember the rule and then click allow, it will create a rule similar to “Allow TCP Out From MAC Any to IP 127.0.0.1 Where Source Port is Any And Destination Port Is 80”
The available alert frequencies are:
- [b]Very High[/b]: The firewall shows separate alerts for outgoing and incoming connection requests for both TCP and UDP protocols on specific ports and for specific IP addresses, for an application. This setting provides the highest degree of visibility to inbound and outbound connection attempts but leads to a proliferation of firewall alerts. For example, using a browser to connect to your Internet home-page may generate as many as 5 separate alerts for an outgoing TCP connection alone.
- [b]High[/b]: The firewall shows separate alerts for outgoing and incoming connection requests for both TCP and UDP protocols on specific ports for an application.
- [b]Medium[/b]: The firewall shows alerts for outgoing and incoming connection requests for both TCP and UDP protocols for an application.
- [b]Low[/b]: The firewall shows alerts for outgoing and incoming connection requests for an application. This is the setting recommended by Comodo and is suitable for the majority of users.
- [b]Very Low[/b]: The firewall shows only one alert for an application.
In order to get alerts from trusted applications you have to set the firewall to “Custom Ruleset”.
:o thx bro i will check it out thx
