question on "custom" firewall mode

I was using NOS ESS in the past and I’ve always used their “interactive” mode.

Now that I’ve move to comodo, I’m wondering if “custom” mode bypasses the HIPS capability of the firewall?

Thank you for the help :slight_smile:

With Custom Policy Mode you will get alerts to each of the programs trying to connect to internet, irrespective of whether it is ‘whitelisted’ (read safe programs known to CIS) program or not (subject to condition that no rule exist for the program under CIS>Firewall>Advanced>Network Security Policy). If a rule exists, firewall will give automatic permissions based on the rule.

It is as simple as that.
