Omnibus_IV said:I personally use COMODO firewall. I have two rules that I have made for my VPN activity.The first rule block my Torrent Application if the VPN is not active. When the VPN become active then the Torrent Application will make connections to the proxy server. If for any reason the VPN drops, the Torrent Application immediately stops.The second rule is for my Outlook Email Client. This rules allows the OEC to operate as long as the VPN is not active. Once the VPN becomes active the OEM stops checking for emails. I do this because several times I forget to close my email and if I am on a server in Japan, the email client tries to connect to Gmail. I then get a "someone is using your email" message and they lock my account. So as soon as I activate VPN, the email stops checking for new mail.As for your Firewall, I cannot say. But probably you would have to have an exception for the URL or IP address of the server you are connecting to. Maybe setup a rule that will work with your TAP adapter. But I am not sure why your firewall would stop you VPN traffic. My Windows firewall was too dumb to know it was on VPN and just kept working.
