Cron update disconnects internet access and VPN?
I'm running openvpn client on my pfSense and noticed that:
- everytime pfBlocker runs daily update
- vpn connection stops working
- interfaces NOT using vpn also lose access to internet
- restarting openvpn service fixes all the issues (until the next update)
Seems like the openvpn service doesn't actually go down but DNS resolving no longer works.
Check to see if the your VPN IPs are in a Feed and being blocked. Review the Alerts Tab.
You can also try without the "State Killing" feature. Any IPs removed will also show in the pfblockerng.log
Thank you for the answer BBcan17. I found VPN IP (xx.xx.xx.0/24) in 2 feeds. One was my own so that's easily removed. Second one is in "/var/db/aliastables/pfB_Europe_v4.txt".
I guess the best way would be to add that that address to whitelist, correct? With 'Permit Outbound'?

Yes make a Permit Outbound Alias and add the IPs to the customlist and ensure that this Permit rule is above the other block rules.
