Whitelisting DNSBL in pfBlocker



  • Thanks @BBcan177 for all your great work on pfBlocker!

    I have set up a large number of lists, and there are a few entries in those lists that don't work for me that I want to override. Is there a way to do that?

    I looked around but all I could find was Bypassing DNSBL for specific IPs, and whitelisting IPs-nothing on preventing DNSBL entries from getting loaded in the Unbound DNSBL tables . (Maybe a good question to sticky?)

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    With all due respect, did your read that post? It doesn't answer the question that I am asking.

    I know about + on the log, but that means that I have to find the item on the log - often that isn't easy, and I can't deal with the problem proactively. I am looking for some way to explicitly and proactively exclude a domain from the DNSBL.

    Did you search and read other posts about this topic? I doubt that.

    So you didn't even really look at the DNSBL settings or read the included help:

    Is it really that hard to even look at the settings before asking questions and wasting the time of others?

    You have to understand that DNSBL operates in the Domain names space and not in the IP space. If DNSBL collects IPs from DNSBL table, it creates a pfB_DNSBLIP_v4 table that is managed by the IP portion of pfBlockerNG.

    You have to visit the IP tab to deal with IP Suppression (and not Whitelisting).

    Click on the many infoblocks to find out how to configure pfBlockerNG.

    It was a case of looking but not seeing. I had a vague recollection of there being a section, but when I first looked I missed it, assumed that it wasn't there and spent a lot of time looking in other places. It is below the fold and buried in other tabs so I missed it.

    When I saw your post I knew that I had clearly overlooked something and was finally able to find the section. In fact, when I opened the section, I found that I had put entries in there about 18 months ago. I couldn't find any posts because it was so damn simple. This is the digital example of hunting high and low for your car keys (or something else) when it is lying in plan sight.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, thanks for helping me find the answer to the question.

    For the benefit of anyone looking for the answer to the question:
    pfBlocker Domain Whitelisting
    Navigate to Firewall / pfBlockerNG / DNSBL and open the area
    Custom Domain Whitelist near the bottom of the page.
