Ive done many tests on my internet connection. As far as DMZ goes... I use it for my Wii
oh actually there are some ports that are blocked off for the very reason of stoping you from making servers (and also because of mass email worms, windows file and printer sharing infections and such...)and to make you pay for a business plan (with a static IP) if you need a server....

another would be if you used static port forwarding which then it would go the computer on that location...

Thought I would try their anti virus as well just for kicks. Anyone else tried the anti virus? Good, bad, thoughts?
i have their full suite running on 7600 x64. No issues at all. Antivirus is what you'd expect. Caught a few already, also the heuristic realtime protection is very accurate in separating incidences from real dangers.

I tried to date: Norton 360, AVG suite and Bitdefender suite. All 3 had issues with 7.

So i give comodo 9 out of 10 on win 7

I normally don't post a link to another forum, but this one is important - I used to love Comodo FW myself - their products a generally good to great, but after this surfaced I refuse to touch Comodo with a 10 foot pole.

It's a good (but long) read - think about it carefully when you are deciding to use their products or not.

vista x64/ win 7 x64

tnx for the link. read it. Seems like they are acting in good faith but were sloppy though.
i'll stick, anyway the heuristic defense picks out the malware anyway even if certified.

As I noted in my prior correspondence, Comodo has undertaken an internal review of the Certstar reseller account. We have informed CertStar that their email violates their contractual obligation to refrain from sending unsolicited emails and that their email could be interpreted as misleading and confusing to the customer. During our review, we discovered that Certstar had apparently issued a certificate to without validating control of the domain. We immediately revoked the certificate (prior to your posting) and have suspended Certstar's reseller activities until our investigation has been completed. Please let me know if you have any further problems.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail)

I have been pretty happy with the way Comodo Firewall (I only use the FW part of CIS) works and find it works well with 7 on my system. I really don't care about these other issues that people are seemingly up in arms about. Apparently they don't get that these certs are not intended to validate the safety of the site in question. They are merely to insure that you are connected to the site you think you are connected to. At least that's the way I understand it. Anyway, for me, the C. firewall works well and it's free and imo, it's not that big a deal to uncheck the ask toolbar box when I install it, same as I do with lots of other free software I use (e.g., Deamon Tools lite, CCleaner, etc.). If that's the price to get a great free firewall, I'm OK with it.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail)

So, if Mike Burgess MVP (aka. ***********) is so meticulous about such things himself (ie. not pedaling rougeware, protecting users, etc), then why has his MVP Profile been showing him as being a Global Administrator for a site name that GoDaddy sold off to the highest bidder many, many months ago?

Warning: The highlighted URL in Mike's profile is a rouge site now, the SpyWareInfo forums (a really good site) is now hosted here:

Vista/Windows 7

I had an issue with Comodo firewall when i first installed windows 7. I could not get my PC to share my media with my PS3 no matter what I did

In the end I realised it was a setting in Comodo Firewall. When I first installed Comodo and it detected my network there was an option on first use in a pop up box with a green bar along the top...apparetly I didnt allow comodo to let my network be discoverd (as far as I can remember) I reinstalled the firewall and checked the tick tick box down the bottom and it worked.

Sorry its a little vauge I cant really remember the exact wording of it all :)

Windows 7 Enterprise x64

I used COMODO antivirus and their firewall for about 3 years, NEVER had a problem.
But about a year ago I bought NOD32 since it gives better protection (Again, never had a problem with COMODO)
COMODO 3.10 does NOT include ASK toolbar!
Their "SecureDNS" Actually saved me once...I clicked on a page and it shown up with a DNS error saying sometimes like "COMODO SecureDNS has blocked this page due to malware"
So I looked up the page on siteadvisor and it WAS malware SecureDNS blocked.
Still using SecureDNS on my router, works good.

I see nothing wrong with COMODOS products.

This is a long story ... Mike Burgess was never the owner of SpywareInfo... he was once a "moderator there, though. The 'real' owner, whose name is Mike, disappeared and so the Domain Name was sold to the highest bidder. BTW, they also jumped the gun with the selling of the site by about 2 months before re-registering the name with payment.

windows 7 Premium

privatefirewall(free)seems to work ok in seven,i use it as a second firewall.Has training mode aswell as other things like app protection.Have been using for weeks now,works with lots of different other security progs.commodo is one of the few i haven't tried it with.I use email certificate and securemail sometimes by commodo,but i don't really like their internet security / firewall,too many alerts for to be a right pain.tried on training mode,safe mode and clean mode.I own avira premium which is one of the best i think.The new kapersky is good,but a bit slow.Also eset a good one.I've bought loads and i've narrowed it down to them over time(in my opinion)-i know they're all decent from reviews.
Using a host file is a good idea i think.I use host manager or hostexpert with homer server or built in one with hostmanager.Blocks web ads aswell so u dont need adblock or similar.Have to watch size of it though and not block sites u want,especially with hphost list
