Hi!
 
After AirVPN Major System Update of April 2014 user can use three alternative connections simultaneously on three different devices with only one bought account. I would like to use my laptop (with Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit and Comodo Firewall configured to prevent ip leaks) as a hotspot. When Comodo Firewall is turned off, everything works perfectly. I can connect my netbook to internet via my laptop and, of course, use AirVPN clients on both machines. However, when Comodo Firewall is turned on, it blocks device, which is connected to hotspot providing computer, from obtaining the internet data transmission. My Comodo Firewall on host is set to prevent leakage according to to the description given here (https://airvpn.org/t...-prevent-leaks/). To let device (connected to host) be connected to internet, I have to disable the main firewall rule (Block And Log IP In/Out From MAC Any To MAC Any Where Protocol Is Any) by changing the command "Block and Log" into "Allow and Log". After the moment when device was just connected and AirVPN client started the encryption of all the communication with the network, the rule can be restored.
 
Is there a possibility to modify configuration of Comodo Firewall to let devices be connected to network through hotspot providing computer without any manual operations within the firewall of the latter? If yes, tell me how, please. I would like to be still protected against ip leakage of course.
 
Thank you for your responses.
