Computer with Comodo Firewall installed can communicate with second LAN computer. The latter one reports “no permission” when attempting to access “Comodised” machine.
My home LAN:
Win 2000 Pro 192.168.1.NN - Comodo Firewall
Win XP Pro 192.168.1.YY - MS XP Firewall
My simple questions (very hard ones will follow
- how to create a rule, which allows me to “see” Win2000 from XP as it was prior to Comodo installation.
- and would it be different after Comodo installation on XP (nearest future plan)
Thanks in advance
Actually I am not sure that the Comodo’s behaviour concerning LAN in a described scenario is up to my expectations.
- as soon as I clicked on XP’s network drive on Win2000. I was there. No question asked by Comodo. Why? Any outbound Internet activity correctly triggers the dialogue. What would be a major difference with first outbound LAN request?
- “no permission” message on XP side of a wire. So I ran to another room where Comodo was guarding Win2000 …. Found no indication that “someone” tried access it. Silence here would a be good thing indeed in case a rule to disable access from 192.168.1.YY was set already (I dono how to it yet. Remember ?
- and the last one which is kinda not good at all. I disabled Comodo on Win 2000 and tested access from XP. Fine. I am in. Ok, now I know for sure. So I enabled Comodo back. And than because of my extremely bad nature I went back to XP and clicked on Win 2000 shared network drive. Oops! I am in. Yes. Until XP is restarted I can access “Comodized” PC. ???
Thanks for your time
