Using Utorrent in combination with Comodo [Resolved]

I am very satisfied with Comodo, with the exception of one thing. For bittorrent I use Utorrent on port 50025. I succesfully forwarded my ports on my router. With Comodo switched off Utorrent says my ports are being forwarded correctly.

When I switch Comodo on, however, it block connections on port 50025. Regardless whetter I allow connections. I have been trying to configure Comodo for days now. I have tried everything: granted Utorrent all access as an application, specific port configuration etc etc. In the log it shows that it is refusing connections due to an incoming rule break. Which is strange because I configured it that it should not be rule break.

Below are two examples of the log.

Can anyone help me with this?

Hi, you need to add a network rule to comodo firewall for this to work. If you read this thread it will explain how, also read panic’s bit about the application rule to ensure utorrent is the only program to use the open port.

That last one is probably most applicable. So for Network (and probably also Application) Monitor rule:
Allow TCP/UDP IN Any Any Any Port 50025 and move it above the last block everything rule.

Thanks for the very quick response. Problem is solved now. I already had tried everything mentioned, except to put tjhe network rule on position #0. I was not aware that the sequence of this rules where important.

Thanks again!

You’re welcome :).

Rule ordering does matter: top to bottom = highest to lowest priority.
