I am attempting to get a program connecting through the internet. The Help files and a troubleshooter indicate that I will need to allow the following ports
5198 - 5199 UDP in/out
5200 TCP in.
which I have done, in the Network and Application Monitor, for the troubleshooter program. But when I run the troubleshooter program, it tells me that it cannot receive UDP in on port 5198.
Definitely, the problem is Comodo as I disable Comodo and the troubleshooter connects with no problems.
Have I missed something?

Hi Numbat, welcome to the forums.
Check CFPs Log (Activity tab). If CFP is blocking something then, by default, it will create a log entry & this will detail what issued the block.
Failing that you could post maximized screen shots of the Application/Network Monitor with the rule in question selected (to reveal the detail in the lower pane). A common problem is to create a single IN/OUT rule that should really be 2 rules because of the source/destination port mismatch due to the traffic direction.

Network Control Rule id7 appears to be the catchall one that blocks everything that gets by the preceding ones. My pass rule precedes this and I think that means it is tested before this event has happened. So what is happening?
OK. I fixed it. Had the ports reversed so that my in was my out and viceversa. :BNC
Now how do I post this thread as fixed?
Yes, that is correct. It means that there is a problem with the Network Monitor UDP IN rule you created. Can you post a screen shot of the Network Monitor with the UDP rule selected. It’s probably just a typeo or something.
No problem, I’ll do that. I’ll close it, if you need it reopened just PM a Mod and ask.
