    Default No Firewall expert rule Alert

    This is the situation:
    I have created a Firewall expert rule (with alert and log) to block a particular site.
    This rule properly work, blocking the access to this site.
    Opening firewall log I can see the outgoing traffic addressed to this site blocked.
    The problem is: No Alert showed.

    Is it a little bug or am I missing something?

    Thank you.

    Are the alerts set to High in the ZA?

    Thank you.
    That's was what I missed.

    Only one note:
    setting alerts to high i receive tooooo high number of alerts and so I can miss this message.

    Is it possible to have this kinds of alerts in middle position? May for new releases?

    Thank you
    Best Regards.

    I wish the ZA had "selective" alerts. Alerts for these applications, but not for those.

    Just open the alert configuration and that is the only adjustment that can be set. Unfortunately.

    Yes for me too.
    Also I would set an advanced rule for an application directly from alert window (like **bleep** PFW).

    Thanks.

    Not just Comodo, but Kerio and Outpost do this.

    Still using kerio 2.1.5 and outpost 3. Both are rule based fws that have the logging easily set up per application or per port or per IP.

    Comodo's logging misses or disappears and does have not have the same logging ability as the kerio or outpost, but it is a work in progress. Comodo is due to release the version 3 and logging has been improved and additional HIPS are brought in.

    The ZA is famous for the intrusion protection and that aspect of logging.

    The expert rules in the ZA can be set to log all , but I have always found it to be lacking.
