Need settings explanation



  • Hello all,

    I need help understanding a setting that existed on my old 2.3 install I believe automatically when I installed pfBlocker and DNSBL but did not exist after updating to 2.4 and latest version of pfBlocker.

    What I am in question about is a line under custom options of the DNS Resolver: "server:include: /var/unbound/pfb_dnsbl.*conf"

    Without that line then on the Dashboard under pfBlockerNG their is a red X next to DNSBL and it says inactive.
    With that line then it has a green check mark and is running.

    Either way under service status it is active with a green check "dnsbl pfBlockerNG DNSBL Web Server"

    I have searched and cant figure out why this is as none of the guides say anything about having that line in the resolver.

    I would appreciate if someone could educate me on this and guide me to the proper setup, for information I am running this install off of ZFS on USB drives with RAM Disks, no Hard drive.

    Thank you!

    Ram Disks aren't really recommended for packages, as they store the package data in the /var folder which with RAM Disks is all lost on a reboot….

    So when you do reboot, you will need to run a Force Reload - ALL to get everything working again.
