    When your that organized i do not see how you can't be secure.

    Thank you for the compliment Coolio10. I've always been real organized.

    So my rules look ok? Can I fine tune them any?

    They are fine. Tune them more and you will need several rules for each app.

    Is it absolutely necessary to create rules by yourself in Comodo (2.4 or 3.0)? I'm still deciding on which firewall to install (Comodo/OA/perhaps ZAP), but I'm totally unfamiliar with rule making.
    I'm worried that I will weaken the defense if I start making my 'own rules'.

    Thanks Bitchenmaui, those links are very helpful. :thumb:
    I'm behind a router (with firewall) so I hope all things go well during setup.

    Well, I'm even tighter than that.

    local lan = 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.9
    local broadcast 192.168.0.255

    I allow Print/File sharing only on the local Lan segment
    {allow tcp/udp in/out localLan localLan ports 13,445}
    and my router performs MAC Filtering to ensure ip address assignments.

    Now I can safely let anyone (eg visitor) attach to my lan and they get full
    access to the net; just not my systems.
