Will Comodo work correct with enabled Windows Firewall?

Now Windows Firewall disabled in Windows7(32bit) is disabled.

And I want to use C:\Windows\System32\LogFiles\Firewall\pfirewall.log
Now pfirewall.log file is empty

  1. Is it true to start logging Windows Firewall must be enabled ?
    Or not?

If I have to enable Windows Firewall (then enable lopgging)

  1. Mayby I can enable Windows Firewall and set “allow everything”-rule up?
    And Comodo will get along together with Windows Firewall peacefully and in harmony

I don’t understand your first question fully but I will try to answer and hope that this answers your question: You don’t need Windows firewall enabled to log in.

It’s not wise to have two firewalls active at the same time. You may have both enabled but don’t be surprised if the OS freezes, cashes or if an application doesn’t have access to the net.

I hope this answers your questions :slight_smile:

If you use CFW, you don’t need to enable Windows FW logging, you have the logs of CFW. You can log everything if you check “log as a firewall event if the rule is fired” for each allow/block rule for an application or global rule.

Valentin N thank you for response…
I am talking about Windows7 connections logs.
Now C:\Windows\System32\LogFiles\Firewall\pfirewall.log (Log file) is empty…
Have I enable Windows Firewall to start filling Windows’s Log-file by Windows7?
Or I can do that when Windows Firewall disabled?

Boris 3 it would by very nice… but Comodo’s Log file is in strange format and maybe unreachable for me… I have Comodo Log files (like …\02_04_2010_14_00_01.sdb ) for many last years.

I want to have log file in text format and I just want to parse it programmatically to calculate incoming MBs…

You won’t capture any data in pfirewall.log unless Windows firewall is enabled, however, as has been mentioned, having two firewalls ruining simultaneously is not a wise idea. There are several things you could do.

  1. use something like SQLite Database Browser to export the contents of the sdb file to csv…
  2. Enable connections logging in the Windows event viewer, then manipulate the data through something like Log Parser
  3. The easiest option, as you just want throughput analysis, is to use something like NetWorx

Thank you very much.

You shouldn’t have any sort of issues. Though this isn’t recommended, I’ve been using Windows Firewall with Comodo for 4 years now and never once had a single issue. I’d say you can be confident the two won’t conflict.

Even Microsoft recommends against running two firewalls… If you won’t believe the company who makes your OS, I guess there isn’t much we can do.
