I have a D-link Router.Model #DIR615.I have 2 devices on this router.My main pc,which is running Windows XP Pro Service pack 3,and is hardwired to the router.I also have a Laptop running on a wireless connection through this router using Windows 7.No problems everything is working fine.The main difference between my 2 computers is the main pc is running on a open vpn connection.The laptop is using my standard isp connection.
My Isp service is 10 megabits down,1 megabit up.I average between 1MB/S - 1.1MB/S download,and up speed averages 100KB/S
I started using Comodo Firewall about a year ago.I had very little knowlege of configuring firewalls,but found some great tutorials.I was a member of Hide My ■■■ Vpn,and used these tutorials to configure comodo.On a side note I found a much better vpn service,but thats another story.The first tutorial I used to control my vpn connection through a mac address,and the second tutorial I found some good tips.
I have seen many tutorials on how to configure utorrent for CIS 3 and 4,but none on CIS 5.There are many different tutorials concerning Comodo,and its confusing.I was able to configure Utorrent using CIS 5,
First,The port checker in utorrent sucks! It shows my port closed,when I use there port checker.The weird part is I am getting my full line speed on my vpn service(1MB/S) through utorrent,and icon is green even though the port checker in utorrent says closed.You can see in picture (1) that my download speed is 1.1MB/S.I am getting over and above my line speed running a vpn connection.In picture (2) I am still getting my full line speed ,but you can see utorrent is saying my port is closed…
Before making any rules in Comodo I forwared the port on the router for utorrent.
Picture(3) are application rules I made a rule for utorrent and firefox using this tutorial http://forum.hidemyass.com/thread-3147.html
The rules i made here apply to my vpn connection.Utorrent and FF will only run under a vpn connection
Picture (4) shows my global rules.You can see the rule I added for utorrent to accept TCP and UDP for the port I forwarded to utorrent.Picture(5) shows Comodo firewall accepting utorrent connections.
I mentioned the port checker in utorrent sucks,and it does I used a 3rd party port checker,and checked the port # I assigned in utorrent,and it says its opened.You can also see in pictures 4 that Comodo Firewall is set up to receive TCP and UDP connections for the port I selected.Picture 5 shows those connections.I am also getting my full line speed,so if the port was closed,that would not be the case.Hopefully this will help people configuring utorrent with Comodo.
Here is my question;
I used Shields Up and it indicated that I had a few open ports.I made a few rules to Comodo to close those ports.I think shields up was reading open ports on the router and that why some were open .I used the port stealth wizard in comodo ,and selected the 3rd option “block all incoming connections and steath my ports to everyone” You can see in picture 4 the rules it added.There are 4 rules.They are below the utorrent rule I made.
Are my ports stealthed? :P0l
