new user - easy way to setup specific rules for applications?

I’ve been using Outpost firewall for a while and just downloaded/installed version I placed the software in “custom policy mode” and would like to know what the best method is to have the firewall alert me to an incoming/outgoing attempt AND allow me to create a rule for that specific type of traffic on a given port.

I don’t think I like the “training mode” because it defaults allows the connections and I have to review the rules and edit them to my liking AFTERWARDS if I understand it correctly.

I’m accustomed to the way Outpost does it. It asks you if a given app can access a given port/direction and protocol.

I can’t seem to get Comodo do to this. Currently it seems new apps can either be allowed to:

Allow (trusted app)
or allow me to apply a predefined policy to the app.

Can I have the firewall tell me, “RDP is attempting to connect on port 3389 to IP addy a.b.c.d”
Click here to add a rule for outgoing TCP on 3389 to IP a.b.c.d.

Does that make sense?

Change your Alert Frequency Level to a higher setting.

We all love software and how we get the feeling that we know something important that we can look into our computers and act smart.

But when we realize how many people are more experienced and software isnt an indication of our knowledge.
