    Windows Vista - Manually Enabling or Disabling Comodo Secure DNS

    You can manually enable or disable Comodo Secure DNS service in your Windows Vista computer by modifying the DNS settings accessible through Control Panel > Network and Internet settings.

    To enable the Comodo Secure DNS service, modify the DNS server IP address settings to Comodo Secure DNS server IP addresses. The IP address are:

    Preferred DNS : 156.154.70.22
    Alternate DNS : 156.154.71.22

    Important Note: If you have chosen to install CIS in a language other than English then the DNS Server addresses to be entered are:

    Preferred DNS : 156.154.70.25
    Alternate DNS : 156.154.71.25

    Both are in english but ".25" it's for non-english countries so you should use ".22" to have a faster response.

    So far I had used OpenDNS and have now switched to Comodo. I must say that I'm impressed: A couple of sites which had always been rather slow for me to access now open significantly faster! I didn't expect that. Great :)

    Lets see I have CIS 5 complete, Comodo time machine, Comodo trust connect and now Comodo DNS.
    Does that kinda make me a comodo fanboy?
    Oh wait I have prevx SOL installed too.
    All comodo products, including the DNS, are working well together.

    I don't understand, I thought Comodo had this out months ago. I guess it was in beta and now it's not?

    Just a note Comodo DNS has been out for a while but malware blocking was never active.

    Does not block malware directly, the dns will block websites address.

    If you are trying to download -www.X4XfhgXX54.com/malware.exe- Comodo DNS will block it (if they have this website blacklisted). Also will block phishing sites, fake sites and all this kind of things.

    Thanks for the info!

    Now, I'm not trying to be cheecky or anything, but what is the detection of threats based on? Last I remember Comodo's anti-virus wasn't exactly leader of the pack, so have they done something to make the DNS blocking better than their AV?

    It blocks all subdomains such as ***.co.cc and ***.byethost7.com although they're not harmful. :(

    Yeah, demonoid, ghacks and other FP's...
    It's the first day though, maybe in time they'll refine their lists.
