Yes, i thought so…
I did it wrong. Glad i mentioned here so you could point me to this.
To be sure, i have completely uninstalled Comodo and installed it again using the automatic mode (the recommended setting in the setup.
I have made a scan of installed files. (Though i get many popups asking me to alow or deny common applications)
I have created a new zone for my network :
IP range is 10.0.0.1 to 10.0.0.255
- 10.0.0.1 is my router connected to internet using NAT, no DHCP
- 10.0.0.2 is my fileserver where Comodo is installed
- 10.0.0.3 is my laptop, connection wireless to 10.0.0.1 for internet access
After this my laptop can do remote desktop to my fileserver.
I left the “block & log” line in network control rules untouched and at the bottom.
My Azureus was firewalled, so i unchecked UPnP and added this rule :
Allow TCP or UDP direction in, source IP any, destination IP (my fileserver), source port any, destination port (the ports i have set in Azureus).
It works fine now, green smilies.
What i do not understand right now are all the rules that were present after default install.
The “any to any” in protocols IP, ICMP, TCP and UDP.
Is this safe ?
Based on my network config (see IP’s above) and the router having NAT, what config in Comodo would be best ?
- Router (NAT enabled, no DHCP, internet connection with static IP)
- FileServer (using Comodo) connected to router
- Laptop connected to router (wireless)
I do connect from laptop to fileserver (remote desktop, file shares etc)
I do not connect from fileserver to laptop
My first impressions of Comodo are very good. It has a clean interface and much more settings compared to ZoneAlarm. It seems to be less resource and performance eating.
Thanks for pointing me to my mistake.
