Global Logging option



  • In pfblocker, I see a "global logging" option in the settings. I was wondering what this option does.

    Ideally, I'd like to move the alerts from the reports tab (specifically, dnsbl but ideally both) into the firewall logs, so I can see where it's getting blocked. If this is not an option, the other idea I had was trying to get it to send the logs to syslog.

    Thanks!

    The "Global Logging" option is used to globally enable Firewall Rule Logging (When using Auto rules). Alternatively, you would enable/disable logging in each IP Alias independently.

    All IP/DNSBL Logs are saved to the Alerts Tab. Its best to use that tab instead of the pfSense Firwewall log. DNSBL logs are not visible in the Firewall logs anyways.

    Also recommend to move to pfBlockerNG-devel.
