pfBlockerNG DNSBL Web Server service won't start "SOLVED"
I cannot get the pfBlockerNG DNSBL Web Server service to start. However, the DNSBL is blocking sites on the BL when I use command line. However, in my browser I don't get the 1x1 pixel page, instead I just get a cannot connect time-out in my browser on blocked sites?
- I Enabled DNSBL
- The Unbound DNS Resolver is enabled
- I set up some DNSBL feeds
- I Reloaded All
I am using a Custom TCP port in System -> Advanced vs. the default of 80. And, I noticed the "DNSBL SSL listening port" is the same as my custom TCP port. Could this be a problem/coincidence or is the pfBlocker set up to use the same port as the TCP port?
I included a pic of my LAN firewall rules to see if there could be a problem there.
Appreciate any help. Thx!

I left the pfblocker ports at their installation default values. Should the DNSBL SSL Listening Port be the same as my router’s TCP port?

I will check my port settings again.
I just don’t see how it still registers packets & blocks sites if the service isn’t running.
It's easy. If you use pfBNG - either configure your WebUI on a port != 8080/8443 or reconfigure the ports in pfBNG. Easy as that. Two services obviously can't listen to the same address/port combination.
Very simple it was. My WebUI port happened to be = one of the listening ports. Not anymore & fixed!
