At first, sorry if the question is dump. I didn’t found an answer and the “last” windows I used was Win7, so I’m not that familiar with Win10.
I was building a new PC with win 10 (1709 for shure). The first 3. party software installations were Nod32 and Comodo (just the firewall + defence+ - i know, but I don’t like CIS:AV). Both programms are up and running, with the Usercontrol of Nod deactivated (Comodo is intended to take that part).
When I do start a new application, defence+ is talking to me, so far so good.
If that application does want to connect to the internet the windows firewall of the windows defender is asking me things - i though Comodo might kill that one but ok.
Now I would think, that Comodo is asking me the same thing too - it does not. But the programm is allowed to connect, based on the WindowsFF rules I think.
It does show me the traffic of the programm in the window thogh, but it is not asking me for rules, nore it is creating rules. This is not what I was expecting…
As an addition, I was not noticing this behavior, because within the installation and configuration process the firewall was running in training mode (ever made Win7 shut down for a very long time because of an not set rule? - I did - so I wanted that everything works for Windows)
Now I thought before I break some things I will ask you guys.
I want Comodo to take the role of the trafficcontrol and I want comodo to create and use rules for that traffic and to control this rules (the windows rules are - less precice).
Do I have to disable the windows firewall (and how? - service?)?, the Defender? or did I missed something along the way?
What config i have to set, that it works the way I want?
On Win7 and below my reaction would be to kill everything that comes with windows and to rip it out, if unshure.
But Win10 I’m still learning.
Thank you guys in advance
