I am pretty much new to firewalls, and the setting up of such things. I recently decided to move on from the integrated one that came with WinXP and try out some of the free ones around. I came across a few but like the comodo offering.
It has some good reviews, but looks a little daunting for a new user, the simplicity of the free PC Tools firewall and also The Ashampoo firewall seems straight forward, but I suppose its a trade off between simple but not so good against a little more complex but secure.
Anyway, a few of us in an apartment complex share a friend’s wireless router, I share files with one other person on this network but not all. I am not sure but I have a feeling that my shared files are been seen and viewed by other people in this apartment block. I would like to know if comodo has a set of rules that would allow me to be transparent on this network to all but still see and access the network. Just to clarify, I would like to be fully invisible to all on the LAN but have full access to others, is this possible?
Thanks for looking
