I’m a relatively new Comodo Firewall user so please bear with me.
I’ve been getting a ridiculous number of hits from a certain few IP addresses on my Comodo Event Log. So I went to “My Blocked Network Zones” and listed them as blocked IPs.
Does this mean that, rather than not getting a response, these people will now get a “closed” response and know that I’ve blocked them? Or will they just get no response as they had previously and be unaware as to whether or not I’m online [NOTE - I’ve been using the third option “stealth my ports to everyone” since I started using the firewall].
The second question is: does Comodo prevent Network Discovery from other IPs on the same ISP and network as you? In other words, if you’ve chosen option 3 and have your ports stealthed, can those on the same ISP network as you still see whether you’re online by pinging you [assuming these people know which network you’re on and which ISP you’re using]?
Hope you can answer these important (to me) questions.
I don’t know to be honest. The ISP is Virgin and I’m not sure what they do between the LAN and the internet. I haven’t installed anything onto the PC (other than Comodo) and have switched off the Windows firewall. I don’t have a router.
Not sure what you mean by “all your finds mean nothing if you are”? What exactly are the pings that the Comodo firewall is picking up?
i have my router stealthing all ports and i have the “block all incoming connections” rule (3rd stealthing option in cfp). you can disable global logging to stop all the event viewer entries. it is most likely router chatter.
