Controlling IPv6 or IPv4 Preference
I am running pfBlocker with DNSBL enabled, using DNS Resolver. After setting this all up I noticed my internet connection from the LAN would drop periodically and I would have to reboot the computer to get internet back. It happened a couple times while streaming a training presentation on Udemy. So not sure if it's something with that site or on my end.
My DNS Servers are 127.0.0.1 as well as 1 from OpenDNS & 1 from Google, but I do have Firewall Rules on the LAN using pfSense as the DNS resolver:
I noticed the LAN interface setting for IPv6 Configuration Type is "Track Interface". It appears IPv6 is enabled. When I set up pfSense originally I don't remember seeing this "Track Interface" setting originally so I'm thinking pfBlocker must have configured this automatically?
I wasn't sure if I should "Prefer IPv4 over IPv6" in the settings?
Appreciate any leads. Thanks!

pfBlocker NG doesn't touch Interface configuration. Track interface doesn't mean you have IPv6 at all.
Anyway lost connection and IPv6 is not related at all.
Track Interface is default with a fresh installation as well as DHCP4/DHCP6 on WAN. If you didn't change it, it came from your setup. As @dragoangel wrote, pfBNG does nothing with interface settings at all.

When you set DNS servers here :
... they are not used.
By default, the Resolver uses the 11 main root DNS servers.
OpenDNS DNS servers needs a special setup.
Google DNS also.
What is this “Add DNS Server” feature for in General settings? What are recommended DNS servers. My goal is to have pfsense handle DNS. Hence, my firewall rules.

I think you need special IT guy to help you if you asking such base question. Really...
No worries, I’ll figure it out.
