trying to delete error

  • I had DNSBL enabled for testing but then disabled it.  The settings had a floating virtual IP of (default) that is now gone but throwing this error in the logs:

    /usr/local/www/pfblockerng/pfblockerng.php: The command '/sbin/ifconfig 'igb1' delete ''' returned exit code '1', the output was 'ifconfig: ioctl (SIOCDIFADDR): Can't assign requested address'

    This error appears to occur after every hourly cron update.

    Has anyone ever seen this and if so, know how to resolve?


  • I played with PfBlocker and DNSBL when I started…since starting pfsense I have done numerous fresh pfsense installs to make this and similar errors go away.

    I don't think you need to do a fresh pfsense install. I wish I had a concrete answer but maybe try doing a uninstall of pfblockerng and then reinstall the package? Make sure to not keep your pfblockerng setting when you uninstall it.

    To answer part of your question, "yes" I have seen it before.

  • thanks!  I'm also having WAN drop issues since upgrading to 2.3.4-p1 so I might just re-install with 2.4 and try that out as well.

    It's just a home firewall so not like I have massive rules/etc set :)
