"Great free firewall, and getting better!"

October 25, 2006  |  By Little Mac

 |  Version: Comodo Personal Firewall 2.1

Pros

Let's start with - it's free! I pretty much consider all FW's to be equal (I know that's not true, but good enough 4 me); however, Comodo's CPF does stuff I haven't seen from any other, free or paid. For the basic user, it provides solid security w/o any modifications to the rules, it's easy to define trusted applications, trusted zones (ie, your home network etc), alert levels, application monitoring, the list goes on. For the power user, you can customize network control rules (almost infinitely), set behaviour analysis to alert you on unknown connection attempts & activity. Great interface, easy to follow. Support is free, with quick responses (and something other than "uninstall/reinstall"), and the forums provide a lot of learning and other assistance from computer-guru types and Comodo staffers. As noted in cons below, I've experienced a couple negatives, but I think this is due, in part, to the high level of thoroughness by Comodo's product - other FW's I've used don't even address these things, and I know my current will allow the OLE connection to go thru, simply because the browser is allowed to connect - never mind what's using it!

I will be switching all my computers over to Comodo, as I think it's a great product, and will only get better as they listen to their users and try to make improvements. They have a great business plan and I like their gumption.

Cons

The language in the network control rules can be kinda confusing (probably not an issue for the basic user; I got help thru the forums) to understand how to set up & tweak rules. OLE Automation issue: Let's say abc.exe wants to access the internet, and tries to use explorer.exe (the defined "parent" app for browsing) to connect. CPF gives an alert. You deny the connect, and it's blocked. From that point until you reboot, CPF "remembers" the denial, and applies it (apparently) to the "parent" rather than the "child" app, thus blocking you from connecting to the internet.

On both these things, Comodo has acknowledged and I believe is working on them for future releases.

"Nice"

Pros

It's the best free firewall out there. Even beats ZoneAlarm Pro. It's real small and fast.

"Great firewall, but blocks iTunes and not as user friendly as ZoneAlarm"

October 14, 2006  |  By JonCalgary

 |  Version: Comodo Personal Firewall 2.1

Pros

I've been a ZoneAlarm user for years. I thought I'd try out Comodo due to rave reviews on this site, others, and in major computer magazines. It definitely is rock solid and as inpenetrable as they come. But...

Cons

It worked fine when the host iTunes machine had ZoneAlarm, and the new wireless slave (where I wanted to listen) had Comodo. Each time Comodo had an update, I had to enter the menu and allow iTunes as an application. Not exactly intuitive! Major problem: it blocked iTunes on either machine from talking to another when I uninstalled ZoneAlarm on the host and installed Comodo there, too. I tried everything to configure both systems, but no luck. So, I'm back to ZoneAlarm on both machines, and iTunes is working flawlessly. ShieldsUp tests can't penetrate ZoneAlarm, just as it couldn't Comodo. I found the menus lacking, too, compared with ZA.

"Its a firewall that is pretty good"

October 12, 2006  |  By cheater87

 |  Version: Comodo Personal Firewall 2.1

Pros

It blocks stuff from getting in and thats what a firewall is supposed to do.

Cons

It stopped Avast from downloading updates. And other programs stopped working. I installed Zone Alarm again and everything was working again.

"Bugs"

September 30, 2006  |  By rcwis02

 |  Version: Comodo Personal Firewall 2.1

Pros

Apparently, according to reviews, its one of the least hackable of the free firewalls (but not of the paid ones).

Cons

Seemed to slow my system down enormously. Commodo would often prevent (or corrupt) internet access after it detected valid software trying to access the internet. I'd have to reboot to regain internet access. I'm using ZoneAlarm (free) and my system is faster.
