    I just switched from Norton to Smart Security after hearing how good NOD32 is with its smaller footprint. Now ive reached a snag, my Bitcomet client is alerting me that im being blocked by a firewall. How to i add bitcomet to my program exception list so that it allows TCP&UDP connections via a certain port?

    check the log of smart security to see exactly what it blocks and why.

    either incoming requests are denied on the port specified in bitcomet, or mayhaps upnp is blocked.

    Torrent clients (such as BitComet) would need a specific port open for incoming communitcation (it can be changed in the BitComet's setup) . Check what the port is and make a rule for BitComet and that port.


    Example


    Open the user interface (GUI) . Enter the Advanced Setup Tree (F5)

    1. Navigate to Personal Firewall. Choose Interactive Mode

    2. Navigate to Personal Firewall -> IDS and Advanced options
    Make sure all services are allowed (a.k.a 4 services)

    3. In Personal firewall -> IDS and advanced options , enabled logging . Press OK.


    Then, open Personal firewall > Rules and zones > Zone and rule setup
    Choose "Toggle detailed view of all riles" (if already not set to this)

    Start creating new rule (use the button called "New")


    Name : your choice
    Direction : Both
    Action : Allow
    Protocol : TCP & UDP

    Additional action:
    check Log


    In Local tab - here , just find where BitComet's exe is located and point ESS to it


    Confirm with OK . Try again.
