You should click on the link, and read.
You'll notice that there are no GUI examples.
Its right from the first line "command line only".
I advise you to read, test and report back here if you find different.
I can not wait to see how he is going to do the mass import for IP4 and DNSBL, I hope its just a simple text doc you can just upload just like you would a backup file on Ublock extension.
Looking forward to it.
I may have to get some more Ram lol only got 8 gig and I bet doing mass list imports will hit the Ram hard.
It would be really cool if it could automatically update the blocked TLDs based on the spamhaus statistics (https://www.spamhaus.org/statistics/tlds/) on a regular schedule. I realize that this may be more difficult than it sounds as I cant seem to find a spamhaus TLD feed, just a website. But if we dont dream then it will never happen!
I like to add :
When all packages are removed, reassure that basic firewall operations are good. Add a 24 hours cool down and one or two reboots are also advisable. Issues that are present before an upgrade will pop up, and have to be dealt with before the upgrade.
I can't get mine to even turn on -- power it on - red lights come on and about 30 seconds later it shuts down..... I have had this for about 2 or 3 years. Came home and found it off - can't get it to boot - just stays red. Trying to get someone to help also.... at least your farther along than I am. Sorry, will be watching to see if you get some assistance.
I am running Community edition 2.5.2 Release
I have the same issue running unbound python mode.
The DNSBL counters in the widget increment OK (25,110) but I have 0 entries in the IP section even though the logs are incrementing fine and Alerts are showing OK in the pfblockerNG alerts TAB..
@marc05 yes indeed, if the rule exists it is checked against it, unless you match with a quick rule then it stops matching further at that point. Advantage of floating rules you can make them quick rules. If you want to reduce the checks you would want to prune rules or try consolidate them etc. or structure quick rules for known good traffic.
Glad to hear that. Is anything lost or does anything change that we would see? Or is it all back-end and everything presents the same to the users? I assume we check that box and all we see is that Unbound doesn't restart as often.
I have this issue also with pfblocker and the Amazon app (Android). I whitelist the domains that I saw in the report log but I still have the dog screen come up stating "UH-OH Something went wrong on our end." What's odd is that this only happens when searching and it only happens when searching certain terms. Has anyone found the exact domains to whitelist? (aan.amazon.com did not do it for me)

With an editor like Notepad++ you could fine it easily.
