The computers on the LAN are unable to browse the web except if I turn off Network control rules. It doesn’t matter even if I set ALL the permissions to allow, including “Allow IP In/Out from any to any where ip protocol is any.”.
Also, it works instantly each time i turn off network control rules. I’m able to ping either comps on the network from either comps. I’m also able to ping the cable isp gateway server from my local networked computer.
Now, problem is that somehow Comodo firewall blocks more things than it shows in that network control page ? I also even have protocol analysis, and block fragmented IP Datagram turned off.
Checked a few more things, and it seems that for some reason CPF network control system causes DNS to not resolve for my networked computers, even with everything set to allow.
Included are 4 screenshots:
The first and second screenshots of my network rules doesn’t allow my second computer to open a new site (tested: yahoo.com, dogpile.com) whose ip is not cached (it’s fine on using google as it has been opened when it’s turned off, thus the ip cached). The second I disabled it (screenshot 3), the tested pages (yahoo,dogpile) loads instantly when I refresh them.
Screenshot 4 is the logs I get (obviously the ‘allowed’ logs are due to rules from screenshot 2, and the ‘disallowed ones’ are from screenshot 1 rules).
All the blank spots on screenshot 1-3 shows my internet ip and the ip that my cable router gave me. And the blank spots on screenshot 4 originally shows my internet ip.
Disabling the DNS query monitoring doesn’t help either. It still only open if i disable network control rules.
