I just downloaded this firewall yesterday, so I have the latest version.
windows xp sp2
account is an administrator
Previous firewall was the windows firewall
I have avg antivirus installed
internet connection is cable
I was wondering if you guys had a setup article on opening 1723 for the windows vpn. It is blocking the vpn dialer. I tried to create an access rule, but it didnt seem to work. However there is some information that I am missing.
I set the source allow from x.x.x.205 and 206 internal IP as that is the ip address that dhcp will assign the connecting computer. I realize that this is probably wrong because the firewall will block the tunnel before an IP is assigned to the connecting computer (duh)
I could try to allow the connecting computers external IP address, but I would prefer not as it is a residential cable isp and those ips are subject to change.
I could also try to open 1723 to any which I guess wouldnt be too bad as the isp of the server machine ping blocks icmp blocks etc… so that the public ip is sort of invisible.
Also, the connecting computer needs to use Remote desktop. Do I need to open a port to 3389 (I think that is the right port) or is commodo defaulted to allow RDP.
Sorry if this has been posted before, I tried a search and didnt see anything when I perused the FAQ.
PS Oh yeah, does the rules list work like a router access list in that the rules are read and applied from the top down. I noticed there was a block any any at the very bottom. That is pretty cool! (J)
