    Is it true that Comodo firewall doesn't have very good inbound protection but has great outbound protection?

    I have a router (so i will have a hardware firewall built in) so does that mean i don't really need good inbound protection but need good outbound protection?

    Until someone qualified said the opposite, no it's false.

    Could be redudant, but at least you will have another layer of protection when the firewall of your router failed...

    I use both at home...

    The thing is in this forum loads of ppl use Comodo firewall.

    They find it one of the best for them. Even one of the most experience users in this forum uses Comodo.

    And i read that it passed the most leak test compared to any other firewall. I thought that was a big advantage.

    But in other forums ppl say that leak test are not as important?

    Yep, I know :)

    At least, is the best firewall on leak protection.

    They said that because the leak test only protect you agaisn't the known possibilities, so someone with skills can find a way to pass it...
