Help with error message



  • Can some translate this error message that shows up in my notifications.

    There were error(s) loading the rules: /tmp/rules.debug:47: cannot load "/var/db/aliastables/pfB_Top_v4.txt": No such file or directory - The line in question reads [47]: table <pfB_Top_v4> persist file "/var/db/aliastables/pfB_Top_v4.txt"

    For some reason the TOP IPv4 list did not get created or is missing?  Check the pfblockerng.log for details…

    Didn't see any errors in the log file so I cleared the notification and have not seen it again. Thanks



  • Getting a similar error on each reboot

    
    There were error(s) loading the rules: /tmp/rules.debug:28: cannot load "/var/db/aliastables/pfB_Asia_v6.txt": No such file or directory - The line in question reads [28]: table <pfB_Asia_v6> persist file "/var/db/aliastables/pfB_Asia_v6.txt"

    The result is pfBlocker does not create any rules

    Forcing an update via Firewall/pfBlockerNG/Update and all is well and remains so until next reboot

    If you are on a RAM disk, it will wipe the /var folder on reboot…
    You can run the following to re-download the MaxMind database:

    php /usr/local/www/pfblockerng/pfblockerng.php dc
    

    Follow that with a Force Reload All…



  • I will give that a try - thanks for the quick response
