Alerts filter only seems to only work on displayed entries

  • As I was searching for a cause of a broken app I tried to search the alerts by IP and received no entries. Only when I changed the displayed lines to a large number did the alerts filter work.

    Is this the intended mode of operations vs being able to go back in time past the displayed DNSBL blocked entries?

    Which version of pfBlockerNG? Try "Devel".

  • I'm still ramping up on the learning curve with the UI.

    I know how to select devel versions of the pfsense release but not how to choose devel versions of packages. e.g. I don't know how I'd install a module update other than via the cli but wonder how that would affect the general install by bypassing the regular distribution channel.

  • pfBlockerNG-devel 2.2.1 is available on the latest pfsense versions.
    You have to uninstall pfBlockerNG 2.1.2_3 before. Keep a copy of your config.xml before uninstalling in the event something breaks.

  • @ronpfs I upgraded my base install to the dev version but the package manger isn't showing a newer pfblockerNG it's still at 2.1.2_4

  • @ronpfs OK I just figured it out that 2.2.1 is a -devel version and is a separate package, not a stable release upgrade for 2.1.2_3 -- I removed the older version and now running the new version.

  • It may be wishful thinking but my SG-3100 is running much better with lower CPU and RAM utilization across the board now that I'm using the -devel version.
