64 bit firewall suggestions?

Hello i am currently looking for a new fire wall to replace Comodo. Ever since 4.0 was released i could not figure out why my xbox 360 couldn't connect to my PC until i realized it happened when 4.0 update came out. I have followed instructions in the comodo forums and xbox live forums for creating a port with the firewall and none have solved the problem. But, the moment i switch back to Windows firewall it works but i would like a decent to good firewall like outpost or Online Armor which i cannot seem to find a 64 bit version for any suggestions would be nice thanks =D

Hello and Welcome,

In comodo firewall did you ever try adding the xbox IP in the "My Network Zones" ?

Odd i was having the same issue with V4 until i added the IP there, am still using comodo an im able to connect. :S

Edit: after you added them in the IP Zone.. did you forget to allow them in Global Rules?
