Windows 7: Comodo Leak Test: What's your score?

When I threw Norton in I didn't pay much attention to the firewall config since it's Mid terms and I haven't had much time for anything.

In Norton the program rules are set to Auto and I did I enable a couple of traffic rules that weren't.

Comodo was there first (had it for about 3 months before Norton) it's set to custom policy, Defense + in safe mode. I manually enable sandbox mode when I need it. I allowed the installation of Norton Firewall as just an extra layer of defense. I was more curious as to how the AV would play with the other programs. When I get my life back I'll do some more investigating.

donīt use 2 firewalls !
itīs a bad idea...

although i once had both Windows firewall & Outpost ( if i remember correctly) running together for a week until i discovered my mistake, and i didnīt notice any problems.

This is the standard advice although I once had left Windows Firewall on after installing the Comodo Firewall much like you did with Outpost without any problems and I think that the fact that Windows Firewall default is set to let all outbound traffic pass was the reason behind it not conflicting with the rather large set of outbound rules that I have set in the Comodo Firewall.

I tend to think of the Norton Firewall as a firewall in the background. It's not set to allow all traffic, The automatic program control is engaged and so is auto learn IPv6 NAT Transversal traffic. Intrusion pervention is on, as is browser protection and download intelligence. Comodo is set to Auto under Norton Program rules. Norton general settings are Uncommon Protocols, Stealth blocked ports, Stateful protocol filter all on. There's more settings under the Traffic Rules, but I've got class in 1/2 an hour, too many to list.

My one gripe (so far) with Norton compared to Comodo is there is no quick way to stop all traffic. There's a shortcut to disable the smart firewall, but not stop all, like on Comodo.

What I mainly regulate traffic under is the Comodo firewall.

I know you're not supposed to have 2 firewalls due to possible conflicts. It could be that Win 7 is just more tolerant of these? I've done a quick scan of my logs and I see no conflicts, well, at least none that I can see, so far.

There is one curious thing I've noticed about Comodo Firewall though:

Anyone else notice or have this behavior present on their machines? This was occuring before I threw Norton on the sys and still continues.

Symantec End Point got a 200/340 score and with everything blocked in Firewall got a 340/340 score so its all in the setting you can get what ever you want normal setting was the first score.

When I was using the Norton 2009 Firewall I spent many hours pouring over the Firewall Logs and I never saw it block anything as every outbound request was allowed by default and I suspect that is why it gets along with Comodo on your Win 7 computer where you set the Firewall rules.

Could you offer any possible explanations as to how Norton could get a perfect score on the Leak Tests on your computer but completely fail on 60% of the Matousec Proactive Security Challenge which is also a Firewall-HIPS Test?

Possibly Maxx...I'll have to investigate some more when I get a chance & make a list of all the traffic rules.

I was more interested in the AV performance then the firewall since Comodo seems to be doing a good job. I haven't done any tweaks on it yet, which is probably when all hell will break loose.

Maybe sometime this weekend I'll disable Comodo & run the test & see how Norton stacks up. That might be interesting.

I retired my Antivirus program after I started running my browser in the virtual space of Sandboxie and I haven't detected so much as a single tracking cookie on either of my computers since the.
