Hi guys,

Just curious about my Comodo Firewall pro, when im online and I go to the connections part of comodo, it says I have a bout 16 - 17 IE Applications running from different ports. Is this normal??

Cheers

I opened up a few websites and Comodo showed 8 entries for ieexplorer.exe or something like that.

Yea, thats whats happening here, just looks really unusual.

Anyone know why it does that? Is it from data going to and fro from the site to pc?

the firewall will be showing each connection separately. unless it makes it into a tree. like net limiter does. so if it is showing 17 connections. do a look up on the IP addresses if it shows them and not the domain names and see where the traffic is going / coming from. it should also tell you the direction of the traffic.

and yes, it will be data going to and from the website you are looking at to your PC. although if it is website browsing, it should only be on port 80

it should have an entry for each website you are looking at. plus other programs like MSN and possibly internal network connections.

Nice little app. I had fun disabling a range of interesting-looking connections... until my internet stopped. :stare: :p

Here's another rendition of the same type of program, think maybe the first one was pinched from this:

Doesn't netstat, which is part of XP, do that very same thing?

Yeah. That nice little app is just a native MS app in a new dress. You don't need it.
