Best way to import many block lists



  • Hi all,

    Curious to know how others setup pfBlockerNG when there are many lists to import?

    I decided to go back to my current configuration and add many more lists to improve my current setup. Clicking to add each one at a time in the DNSBL or IP tabs is rather tedious and when I consider I might be doing this for multiple pfSense systems (friends etc) I'd like to script or better understand ways to do this more efficiently.

    This is really exciting stuff!

    I am curious how the feeds are determined and whether there is still the option for manual addition of our own choices? Very much look forward to trying this out either way.

    As one of his testers I can tell you it is real jewel in the new package.  As to how they are determined I'm assuming he is just creating them using his best experience at this point.  How that evolves will probably be up to how well the community will assist.  But the "feeds" section does so much more than just provide lists…...

    As to your last question - yes, you can still add your own lists.

  • Thanks for the update Rick, hopefully BBcan will provide more info on the feed choices. Either way it certainly looks like the next big release has some really exciting stuff in it.
