Outgoing only

Hi all, I have a 4port router with a firewall, which i have set to incoming…Now can i set CPF to outgoing only…and is it safe ( or wise ) for me to do that. As it seems logical that if my Router blocks incoming Baddies My CPF would be O.K. blocking outgoing baddies.

As i’m new at this stuff…i looked through the FAQ’s but didn’t understand Half of what was in them. (:SAD)

Sorry pal you can not do that…
This is due to the fact that your routers firewall and cpf works as two separate entities. This is called layered firewall architecture.
You ll have to define firewall rules separately for both.

Damitha…thank you for the Info… :■■■■

jeepers,

You might take a look at this thread: https://forums.comodo.com/index.php/topic,6167.0.html

It’s a locked compilation of tutorials and explanations about various aspects of the firewall; this means it should be a little easier to read, as there’s not any responses to sort through.

There is a good discussion of various terminology used, which could help you understand some of the other stuff as well.
