  • What version of pfBlockerNG are you using ?



  • 2.1.1_4 with TLD enabled



  • @johnabbot:

    2.1.1_4 with TLD enabled

    And what does pfblockerng.log extras.log , Status System Logs, Resolver Logs shows? Any crash report in Dashboard?

    Did you raise the Firewall Maximum Table Entries?

    Go to Firewall / pfBlockerNG / Africa tab and see if your selection are still fine. Hit Save, then do a Force Reload IP. Check the logs after.

    Mothing in any of these logs.

    Any crash report in Dashboard?

    The one I posted

    No

    Go to Firewall / pfBlockerNG / Africa tab and see if your selection are still fine. Hit Save, then do a Force Reload IP. Check the logs after.

    Force Reload IP gives this

    I don't see anything in the logs

    That's not a crash report, probably a failure to load the table.

    @johnabbot:

    No

    It is mentionned many many times that if you are using GeoIP tables, you need to raise Firewall Maximum Table Entries in System / Advanced / Firewall & NAT

    @RonpfS:

    The http://adblock.gjtech.net/?format=unix-hosts doesn't seem to be available anymore.
    Just turn the list state to OFF.

    When a list fails to load, use the URL and load it in the browser. That URL is now just a standard Web page, the same as http://adblock.gjtech.net, so something changed at that site. Fetching a Web page to pfBlockerNG will certain cause failure.

    It is good practice to monitor the pfblockerng.log on a regular basis to see what is happening. That list has been broken since 08/13/16.
