I’ve read through the manual and the help files, and I think I understand what comodo means when it refers to in/out destination/source relationships. This is what confuses me about limewire.
I’m trying to set some good control rules for limewire. These are the rules I have.
limewire.exe (no parent check) [ALLOW, TCP/UDP, OUT, ANY PORT, ANY ADDRESS, allow invisible]
limewire.exe (no parent check) [BLOCK, TCP/UDP, IN, ANY PORT, ANY ADDRESS, allow invisible]
I know these are not the proper rules, and I know limewire needs an inbound port open to function correctly, but I’m using them to illustrate something else that confuses me.
According to my log, I keep getting inbound connection attempts being blocked by the application. This is what should be happening with my above rule set. What confuses me, is that the address listed as destination appears to be the source. ie, the “destination” address is the address of the person sending me the data.
I understood that on inbound connections, the destination should always be me. Am I missing something?
P.S. Incidentally, I’m sure this has been answered before, but the search function on these forums doesn’t appear to work. I get the same results no matter what my keywords are. I’ve tried “limewire”, “limewire rules”, “application monitor limewire”, and “blah blah”. All search querys return the same unrelated results. Maintenance on the forums?
