I note there was a topic, now locked, with this title—Xp switch Comodo Firewall off [RESOLVED]
While I can’t disagree with the rationale Eric Egan used to explain what amounts the general case, its does sort of
trigger a question I have.
Because many times I have a diagnostic question that basically boils down to.
I am having some problem ( X ), something is not working as its supposed to, and does this relate to my firewall or not?
Simple yes no binary answer desired. Many years ago, I had another firewall I could simply turn on or off like a light switch. And get an answer, often in seconds, and then turn the firewall back on equally rapidly. Which also usually exonerated the firewall as the culprit because I then knew the problem was somewhere else. Or it told me the problem was with the firewall and I had a configuration problem to work on.
The fact that comodo 3 lacks that, is in my mind, a problem. It just makes troubleshooting harder. And now to answer that question, I might have to completely remove comodo from the computer to get a definitive answer.
