This is such a helpful forum!
As a network administrator myself, I was only posting my findings: I could care less about the intolerance-and quick judgement- of the comodo staff; which resembles troll-like flaming even though it is their forum… I seem to get more hate from the staff than actual help, here, anytime I post my observations: Observations I only make when I find an error, so I’m not going to ■■■■ sunshine up yer rear when I’ve got a problem!
And by the way: Why yes, I did ask:
on page three of that thread!
I was told implicitly:

The Adobe and Micrsoft files are on the big Comodo white list as trying to add them to My Pending Files shows.
What you see is the result of the new default settings of CIS.
Therefor I move this to the Firewall Help board

With CIS v4 my p2p client (uTorrent, e Mule…) is not working properly anymore
I then tried the “suggested fix” three posts below my original, only to have comodo STILL completely ignore adobe’s phoning home, not even giving me a pop-up when I tell acrobat to update–Allowing the update without warning!
Sorry for the facts…
I did a fresh XPSP3 install off-line, and then installed the firewall (the March 3rd release)prior to going on-line, so It’s not a pre-existing threat. I even removed all the trusted vendors from the Defense+ “my trusted software vendors”, to no avail…Acrobat could still dial home and update.
I then set the firewall to explicitly blocked Adobe photoshop from the internet, only to lose connectivity until I unblocked it!!!
So: feel free to flame away and send my posts where noone will read them, but my observations and their results are rock solid. Unlike the results I have concluded from MY PERSONAL TESTING your firewall. If you don’t want us to report our so-called “problems”, maybe you should get rid of your forums, because they seem to infer that we-the users of your software- are supposed to report our findings, yet whenever we do, your staff gets too upset to reply with civility…or just moves our threads to an obscure forum which has nothing to do with our problems. We “end-users” may be morons, idiots, and/or maybe even trolls: our posts may lack clarity and some of us may not know much about computers, but you are supposed to be “Comodo’s heroes”, despite your words which often reveal otherwise.
