Block Youtube but can access after a while
I managed to block youtube thru alias and schedule. I tested blocking and unblocking. When I tried to block it again, i can go to youtube unless i clear the browsing history. Any tips to block youtube on schedule basis? i'm not using squidguard. just using the firewall.

Youtube.com resolves to a lot of different IP addresses. pfSense aliases are only resolved every 10 minutes or so, so what your alias holds may not match what DNS tells your browser for youtube.com. If you really need to block Youtube then you will need squid/squidguard or pfBlocker or some other way of doing URL filtering like that.

Someone says this works (if unbound is at the correct vers)
The key is to use URL blocking, not by IP. The solution comes next, whatever is applicable - squid, IP lists…
