pfBlockerNG Permit Inbound Wildcard Domain
I have been using pfblocker for geoIP blocking only. Recently, I've discovered that putting manual rules within the pfblocker rules get bumped down the list every cron update.
I am trying to make a permanent exception to allow inbound requests from *.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com.
in the IPv4 tab, the rule list is set to "Whois" and source I've set to *.amazonaws.com. This fails during update.
Any ideas how I can whitelist IPs that resolve to a wildcard domain such as this one?
Maybe this will help... Is there a way I can parse and whitelist Amazon IP Ranges?
To my surprise, my attempts in getting the AWS IPs white listed actually works--just needed to clear my firewall states.
For those wondering, this is what I did... This is assuming all AWS server IPs are trusted.
- Alias Name: AWS
- List Description: Allow AWS Inbound
- IPv4 Lists: Format-Auto, State-Hold, Source-https://ip-ranges.amazonaws.com/ip-ranges.json, Header/Label-aws
- List Action: Permit Inbound
- Update Frequency: Weekly
- Other fields default should be okay.
If you want to specify ports, set and enable a Custom DST Port under "Advanced Inbound Firewall Rule Settings".
Otherwise save, and run pfblocker update in Firewall/pfBlockerNG/Update.
For immediate results you might need to clear firewall states in Diagnostics/States/Reset States.
More info here.... I'd like to add a page for this in the GUI, but too much to do with so little time....
