So my problem is that Comodo’s firewall is blocking all outcoming connections to my Minecraft server, even though I have set an application rule to allow every connections coming to javaw.jar, which Minecraft is using. I have also set a global rule to allow the port Minecraft is using, which is 25565. I also added the 25565 port to the firewall port sets config, which didn’t help. I have also reinstalled the firewall, which didn’t help either.
I can connect to my Minecraft server using localhost on my own computer, but when I use my external IP address or others try it, it won’t connect.
I have to disable the firewall and just then I and others can connect to the server with my external IP address. I just don’t want to keep Comodo disabled since I’m planning on continuing to run my server almost 24/7. This is not the first time I’m running this server, I have been running it for me and my friends for years now, but we haven’t been playing much lately so I haven’t been keeping my server up lately.
Now I’d want to play again, but even if I haven’t changed any settings, Comodo won’t let me connect. Is it because of newer Java or server version or newer Comodo version I’m using?
I have been using Comodo for years now, and would like to continue using it, but I can’t use Comodo if I want to play Minecraft with my friends, so does anyone have any clue what could be wrong?
