Hi this is my first post in this forum. I have been using CIS 5.5.195786 on Windows 7 for about three months and am slowly coming to understand how it is structured. I still have a lot of basic problems with it that are not well explained (or explained at all) in the user guide. For example:
I get a CIS popup that an external computer is trying to get access to mine. Well, I’m not expecting anyone so my natural impulse is to block the IP address. Then I remember that I’m running UTorrent, so could this be a Torrent server wishing to connect to me? I am also using PeerBlock to keep the undesirables out.
When I check my Log Viewer of Firewall Events, I see that the reason for this blocked request was that C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe had a UDP In request from a source IP in a European country that matched the IP of one of my peers in UTorrent. Quite possibly this was legit (though why wasn’t CIS asking me about every other peer request?).
My question is: Does CIS add this IP address to a list of blocked IPs, and if so, where the heck is this list kept? I’ve searched everywhere. I haven’t set up a special filter for UTorrent as suggested here (https://forums.comodo.com/guides-cis/firewall-tutorial-for-utorrent-with-comodo-internet-security-t15677.0.html), nor is my problem exactly the same as the one posted here (https://forums.comodo.com/guides-cis/firewall-tutorial-for-utorrent-with-comodo-internet-security-t15677.0.html), since this referred to another home computer that was blocked.
Now if I’ve blocked this IP, will I be notified again when it asks again? I think I should unblock it, so how do I do this? Surely there must be a list of blocked IPs somewhere in Comodo, not simply in the list of firewall events.
Thanks for your help with this.
