using secure DNS, and works fine so far. Thanks for that.
Question: is there a way to easily disable the service for a single site? For example firewalls allow you to manually open ports. I would like to do the same for Secure DNS: Manually setting NOT to use Comodo proxies when visiting site www.whatever.com.
Why would I want that?
I assume that Comodo keeps some logs on web traffic etc., that potentially could be “re-used”, be it for advertisement or data mining purposes, or even by law enforcement agencies from hell knows which country! I know Comodo has privacy rules etc., that is all fine and nice, but it wouldn’t be the first time that some U.S. court forces service providers to disclose information, would it?
As I said, in most cases I am happy to use Secure DNS to have a save connection, but in some single cases I may want to opt for privacy over security. And for such cases it would be great if I had some easy way to manually disable the proxy settings used by Comodo.
So questions are:
a) is that possible?
b) if yes, how to do?
c) if not, any work-around?
Although you can not disable the secure DNS for a single site, you should be able to bypass it by creating an entry for the site in your hosts file.
The hosts file on XP (I am not certain if it is the same for Vista and Win 7) is usually located:
It is a text file without an extension so should be opened with notepad when you are prompted which program to use and the format of the entries is “IP address [space or tab] DNS name” e.g. for these forums:
We still have not found the answer to many of our questions or had anyone respond from Comodo in detail on the website or forum in the days, weeks, months, since Comodo DNS has been out; but I could be wrong, forgive me in advance if I am.
I look forward to this information being easily available in the Help, FAQ, Forum, Website, Block Page, CIS, etc.
I am trying to keep my eyes and ears open for the answers, I will keep trying.
I do want to thank the Comodo Team for all that they do and provide, I imagine yall are pretty busy, but it would be nice to get some of this information in advance before a new product is released and/or when requested multiple times by members of the community; on a reasonable time scale of course.
Keep up the good work and thank you for your time,
