New pfsenser - how to blacklist domains.

  • I thought this would be the reason d'etre for pfsense and can't understand why I'm struggling, so need some help:

    I've got Squidproxy server and pfBlockerNG running in 2.3.4 (and 2.4 beta)

    In pfblockerNG I can setup a table of DNSBL feeds to go off and find a text file of domains under various categories. But I have additional lists in my Windows hosts file I've built up over a few years and trust. I can easily parse the list to remove the loopback ips in the text file, but then what?

    From time to time I want to manually add my own domains to block or generate my own custom list and don't want to keep doing an IP lookup. I guess I could find the DNSBL files in freeBSD if still in text form and append to the entries, but wonder if these would be lost after a cron update?

    In Windows I can easily navigate to the etc/hosts file and append domains. In pfsense, can I build my own black list text file then import it as a file using the web gui?


  • Help please anybody? I just want to import my own domain black list created in a text file into pfsense and manually append to it from time to time? Or the same file in any other format like csv?

    In the DNSBL tab add the domains to the custom list at the bottom of the page of any DNSBL group.
