hey i need some opinions but for the comodo firewall stealth port wizards which option should i put the first second or third one. for ur info i am also running oovoo and win live messenger hope comodo firewall will not interfere
The following describes the differences between those two modes as well as how to open a port when using the new default stealth configuration.
The default Global Rules changed from being alerted for incoming traffic on a per case basis to a general block of all incoming traffic (default Stealth).
There are two ways to go here.
- Use the Stealth Ports Wizard to go back to the old situation. Go to Firewall → Common Tasks → Stealth Ports Wizard → select “Alert me to incoming connections - stealth my ports on a per-case basis” → Finish
- Open the needed ports in Global Rules following:
To open the port TCP 1723 for example
First step is to determine the MAC or Physical address of you network connector. Go to Start → Run → cmd → enter → a black box will show up and enter the following → ipconfig /all (notice the space before /all) → enter → now look up the Physical address and write it down.
Notice that Physical address = MAC address
Firewall → Advanced → Network Security policy → Global Rules → Add → fill in the following:
Description: Incoming Port
Source address: Any
Destination Address: Choose MAC address and fill in the found MAC/Physical address
Source Port: Any
Destination Port: 1723
Then push Apply → Now make sure that the new rule is somewhere above the basic block rule(s) as the bottom (the block rules have red icons); you can drag and drop the rules → Ok.
hey thnx for replying and i think i will agree with u TQ soooooooooooooooooooo much
