Like everyone else, i’ve been staring at the “support ends Nov. 20th. . .” message for some time. Well, it’s Nov 22 and i’m finally getting around to doing it, and now i’ve got issues. I’m running XP SP2, 32-bit. i have CFP ver.188.8.131.52 - Don’t ask why i never updated beyond that, i can’t say, except i saw a lot of “Error 106” every time i tried. Seems the server is always busy when i want to update. I’ve also got CAV, build 184.108.40.206, database 220.127.116.112.
I’ve looked all over the forums, randomly and with searches, and haven’t found a topic that covers this fully - only partially.
My issue is: I have to uninstall both CFP and CAV before installing CIS. however, I’d like to keep the network rules that i’ve got, as well as my application and component monitoring info. Also the info from my HIPS application control.
Since i’m running CFP ver2.4, there isnt a backup option within the program. Shoul i backup my setting using a script like this one: https://forums.comodo.com/help_for_v2/script_to_backup_cpf_v24_firewall_settings-t2366.0.html And will the backup be compatible with CIS?
Since I have a home network set up, each computer running CFP, does it seem easier to “keep” the rules by updating one computer, manually create the custom rules by looking at the non-updated computer, then export the new settings from the updated computer to the non-updated, and import from there. Maybe just deal with having to start fresh with the application and component monitoring?
For CAV, is there a script to back-up my HIPS info? or like CFP, just start fresh with the monitoring and deal a little extra trouble for a short while?
There it is. Any advice/help would be appreciated.
