I checked out your link and did not see Firewall mentioned anywhere on the page. Do you have another link showing that Norton 360 has a Firewall?

As far as the Comodo Firewall being noisy that is a thing of the past as the developers have made Comodo 2011 very quiet and still just as effective as ever.
Comodo Firewall can also be configured to be very quiet Once it knows what I want it to look for, and then I set it to bother me but once in a while

It doesn't specifically mention a firewall.

you get less points when testing on an ADMIN-account.
but, you donīt have to use an ADMIN-account, you can run CLT on your "normal" USER-account.

unless Comodo has released a new changed version of CLT recently....
I thought as much. The program has that shield symbol in the bottom right of its icon and it asks for the admin password on load. Clicking No just causes it to shut down

after i had turned off my computer i realized what you meant....

you get a UAC-prompt when you run CLT, but thatīs normal, as you have to run CLT "as ADMIN" (elevated).
but that is NOT the same as using your ADMIN-account for the tests.

i have tested several firewalls with CLT & CPIL.
if i login to my ADMIN-account and run CLT, then there are usually a few leaks.

if i login to my USER-account and run CLT, the result is better as a USER-account is more restricted and thus provides better security.

iīm using Online Armor and get a full score, 340/340.

That's good advise and as far as I know Comodo has not released a new version of CLT so your advise stands.

@ Maxxwire

Sorry about that, I should have said I'm running Norton 360 Ver 4.0 All in one security suite which includes a firewall. I'm trying it out since a friend of mine bought the 3 license version and let me take it for a spin to see what I think of it.

I'm also running MSE alongside it and it plays well, as MSE usually does with other AV's.

Comodo and Norton firewalls seem to play well together.

Comodo Defense +, MSE and Norton 360 are also all running under the spyware & unwanted program protection

So far no conflicts (Knock on wood)

lol i was wondering when someone was going to mention that.

When this build was first released i assumed that because i was just running the basic firewall (defense+ disabled) that the cloud scanner was also disabled until i run it through the GRC leak test & it burst into action.

I have also had it crop up with a couple of system tools (cloud heuristic) which is understandable as they access drivers & system files

I can understand you're wanting to try Norton 360 since your friend offered you a free license, but ultimately Firewalls operate according to the rules that they have been given and only the one set of more restrictive rules will apply unless you run 2 identical sets of rules in each Firewall in which case having 2 Firewalls identically programmed would mute any additional protection that having the additional Firewall would offer. My guess is that the 2 Firewalls appear to be 'getting along' because they are both set in default 'allow all' mode.

What mode are you running your Comodo Firewall in? If you run it in the default Safe Mode it will create rules for all trusted programs just like Norton does, but if you bump its security level it up a notch to Custom Policy Mode and remove the previous 'Safe Mode allow all' rules the Comodo Firewall will allow you to decide which programs will be allowed to access the Internet and you can thereby develop your own set of Firewall Rules based on your own personal computer security decisions which is what the Comodo Firewall can be all about and you will have a whole new level of control over what programs your computer allows access to the Internet rendering the allow all default settings of Norton effectively bypassed.

You can set up Norton the same why by turning off Automatic Program Control and turning on Advanced Events Monitoring.

Could you please show us your CLT results from using this configuration? A screenshot is worth 1,000 words!

Win 7 firewall fails leak test
