IPv4 update frequency

  • pfsense version: 2.4.4-RELEASE-p2
    pfBlockerNG version: 2.1.4_16


    I've noticed that any IPv4 lists that I have with an update frequency set in hours (ie: hourly, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12) always update every 1 hour (assuming the time-stamp has changed) instead of the actual hourly setting. Lists set to update daily or weekly update exactly when they should.

    The 'General settings / CRON Settings' is set for 'Every hour'.

    I'm running pfsense with pfBlockerNG on a dedicated hardware box. I've also tried this in a VirtualBox VM with the same issue.

    Have I missed a setting somewhere?

    Thanks in advance

    I would suggest moving to pfBlockerNG-devel... I'm not actively updating the older version unless there are critical issues. Once you install it, you won't want to go back to the older version anyways. :)

    If the problem still exists after that, let me know.

  • pfsense: 2.4.4-RELEASE-p2 (amd64)
    pfBlockerNG-devel: 2.2.5_22


    I've just built a new VirtualBox VM (FreeBSD-64), installed pfsense & pfBlockerNG-devel.

    I have 3 IPv4 lists - one set to update every hour, the other two set to update every 4 hours.

    As before, all the lists update every 1 hour - this can be seen in the update log.

    Any ideas?
