Hi! Just downloaded and installed Comodo FireWall yesterday. On install, I selected the option for max defense, thus I was expecting quite a few pop-ups everytime I tried to do anything. Instead, I’ve received no popups and all applications seem to have full access to the internet.
My first thought was that everything already installed on the machine has full access by default. But looking at the default configuration, it seems that only Comodo and Windows have default access. My second thought is that maybe everything has outgoing permission by default. However, I have unable to find a checkbox somewhere that says that. I did find a checkbox saying this machine was an internet gateway and unchecked that.
So my basic question is how do you get Comodo to start blocking?
When prompted on the install, I selected the “maximum” option. It had 3 choices, the middle one was the default and I selected maximum. My apologies for not recalling the exact text on the installation dialog box.
After installation, my only change was to uncheck “This computer is an internet connection gateway” within the behavioral settings dialog box.
Other than that one change, Comodo is running with the default installation configuration.
