Hi all. Firstly, thank you for the opportunity to try your free firewall, regardless of whether I continue to use it or not.
My system OS is WinXP Pro with SP2 and Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, Athlon 2000+, 768mb ram, and Radeon 9800 pro. My net connection is 2Mbit cable, using my onboard Broadcom integrated ethernet adapter. Connection works good. I’m using Comodo Firewall Pro 22.214.171.124. Database is Version 3.0. I have admin priviledges and I have recently installed AVG.
I’ve always been ok with speeds when I used the firewall in Pc-cillin Internet Security, but that app has now expired. Today, I’m downloading a 2.5GB torrent with Azareus and my D/L speeds are no higher than 20kb/s with CPF set at ‘custom’ security level. The Azareus NAT is on yellow. I checked out your tutorial which said to uncheck ‘enable UPnP’ but that didn’t make any difference. When I set CPF to allow all ( not good of course ), NAT went green and my speeds shot up. So I’ve disabled Comodo and enabled windows XP firewall for now. Speeds are back to normal. Here are my screenshots.
I noticed that ports and/or IP’s are getting access denied. How can that be?
I had azareus set to 6881. So I changed it to 52163. Still says access denied. Yet I’m still getting some download through Azareus, albeit very slow.
After rebooting my pc, comodo activity is still reporting access denied to the azareus port numbers even though azareus isn’t even loaded! It’s also showing access denied on both the new port number and the 6881 port, even though I’d changed and saved my incoming listening TCP and UDP ports to 52163. I am very confused! ???
Here is the log after rebooting. I’ve tried to give as much info as I can, hope it helps.
