Filter Reload Error

  • I just noticed this error when logging into the WebUI today. Could this be at all related to why my firewall rules that have alias lists stop working after a period time requiring a system reboot? I've been keeping an eye on this bug thinking a future fix to it my do the trick.

    There were error(s) loading the rules: /tmp/rules.debug:26: file "/var/db/aliastables/pfB_Top_v4.txt" contains bad data - The line in question reads [26]: table <pfB_Top_v4> persist file "/var/db/aliastables/pfB_Top_v4.txt"

  • Hi,

    " /var/db/aliastables/pfB_Top_v4.txt " isn't a file managed or generated by "filterdns".
    It isn't a file present on pfSense by default, so it must be related to a package. I tend to say : pfB .... = pfBlocker ;)
    Remove this package, the issue should stop right away.
    Goto Home => pfSense Packages => pfBlockerNG for more information.
