    hi, my comodo firewall keeps on blocking this ip:

    208.116.56.19
    port: 4447
    protocol: udp
    called: windows operating system

    anybody knows what this is and why it gets blocked?

    thanks

    A few people have noted this. It appears to be incoming connections from the Comodo cloud. Apparently there's a problem with delayed /unsynced connections but I don't know if there's a solution yet. You can turn off cloud lookups under Execution Control settings if you don't like it.

    for me it looks like this is a pretty important feautre of comodo defense+.. nice that it doesnt work properly :rolleyes:

    i would actually like to keep this enabled but.. does it work at all? it seems like i block every incomming connection of comodo cloud. so it cant work?

    I don't know if it's that it doesn't work, it may just be attempting extraneous connections. I don't use auto-"sandboxing" / cloud scanning so I can't confirm.
