I've Googled without a relevant result. I've searched the Comodo forum at great length and in detail. I've read the Comodo guide (all 300+ pages of it). I cannot find a description, in lanugaue that I can understand, of how to enable file & print sharing through Comodo's Firewall, with their free Internet Securiy product, version 5.5.

It see, judging by the Comodo forum, that many other people have the same problem, but I don't see a resolution.

Does anybody here know how it is done?

I forgot to add a quote from the Comodo forum article; it says:

"I pity those with no tech knowledge trying to figure that out...! ".

Exactly.

There is no information in the article on how this was done.

I don't work with Comodo but the principles are universal for all firewalls

you create a rule
in the rule you allow those listed ports
you associate the rule with your lan subnet

perhaps this will help

Indeed it did help, so thank you.

After some 12 hours of reading, writing, choosing, trying, booting, loosing (do I use MAC address in preference to Hostname? What if MAC address is different for wired and wireless connection, do I use IP or TCP or UDP ... and so on) I am now quietly confident of having no idea whether or not my security is compromised.

And to think this could be done in 3 to 5 interactions, in about 15 seconds, with Windows (non)-Firewall.

And the best joke? It made not one jot of difference; I still cannot do file or printer sharing.

But let's close this post as solved, here.
