    I'm have been for some time a Comodo user, but now I have changed to LnS.

    A Comodo forum member has typed these rules for eMule:

    Rule 1

    Action = Allow
    Protocol = TCP
    Direction = In
    Description = Rule for incoming TCP connections
    Source Address = Any
    Destination Address = Any
    Source port = A port range = (start port = 1025 / end port = 65535)
    Destination port = your TCP port of emule

    Rule 2

    Action = Allow
    Protocol = UDP
    Direction = In
    Description = Rule for incoming UDP connections
    Source Address = Any
    Destination Address = Any
    Source port = A port range = (start port = 1025 / end port = 65535)
    Destination port = your UDP port of emule

    Rule 3

    Action = Allow
    Protocol = TCP or UDP
    Direction = Out
    Description = Rule for outgoing TCP and UDP connections
    Source Address = Any
    Destination Address = Any
    Source port = A port range = (start port = 1025 / end port = 65535)
    Destination port = A port range = (start port = 1025 / end port = 65535)

    Rule 4

    Action = Allow
    Protocol = ICMP
    Direction = Out
    Description = Ping the server (edk network)
    Source Address = Any
    Destination Address = Any
    ICMP Details = ICMP Echo Request

    Rule 5

    Action = Ask (enable Log as a firewall event if this rule is fired)
    Protocol = TCP
    Direction = Out
    Description = Rule for HTTP requests
    Source Address = Any
    Destination Address = Any
    Source port = A port range = (start port = 1025 / end port = 65535)
    Destination port = 80

    Rule 6

    Action = Block (enable Log as a firewall event if this rule is fired)
    Protocol = IP
    Direction = In/OUT
    Description = Block and Log All Unmatching Requests
    Source Address = Any
    Destination Address = Any
    IP Details = Any

    When I used Comodo I used these rules but changed them a bit to suite to me.

    Can anyone translate these rules so I can edit them in LnS, specially the one that uses ICMP protocol.

    It would be great if it would be explained with the help of images, instead of strange expressions as 'something = 1'.

    Hi geko,

    Here are below the corresponding fields in Look 'n' Stop for the first rule. It is the almost the same for rule #2 and #3 (just adapt the type of protocol, and the direction).
    There are already rules in standard Look 'n' Stop ruleset to allow the ping, so you don't require rule #4.
    Same for rule #5, there is already a rule to allow standard connections.
    Same for rule #6, there is already a rule to block everything no allowed.

    Regards,

    Frederic

    Action = Allow
    The action is not selected in the rule edition dialog box, but directly in the main window, on the Internet Filtering tab. To allow packets, you have to remove the stop sign by clicking on it.

    Protocol = TCP
    For "Ethernet Type", select IP, and for "Protocol", select TCP

    Direction = In
    In direction group select the right choice, nothing special here.

    Description = Rule for incoming TCP connections
    In rule name, put this short description.
    In description, you can put the same, or a more detailed text.

    Source Address = Any
    This is in Source Group/IP Address, already set to "any" by default.

    Destination Address = Any
    This is in Destination Group/IP Address, already set to "any" by default.

    Source port = A port range = (start port = 1025 / end port = 65535)
    In Souce Group/TCP-UDP Ports, select the "Range A-B" criteria and just below put 1025 and 65535.

    Destination port = your TCP port of emule
    In Destination Group/TCP-UDP Ports, select "equal to" criteria and jyst below enter the port.
