(Solved) Unblock Specific Website



  • I'm having trouble trying to find the cause of a specific website being blocked.

    I'm able to do a DNS lookup.

    and also ping
    3aab5eb3-c78d-44d4-9c65-267c4c6522ce-image.png

    This is the error I receive in Chrome. I've also tried other browsers.

    I also haven't found that IP address in firewall or pfblocker logs. I even tried adding that hostname in the pfblocker whitelist.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    Chrome

    The first two tests are run from pfSense. To make this test 'logic', run the third test (Chrome) also on pfSense.
    You would probably say : I can't ... correct, me neither.
    So, run the nslookup and ping test from your device - as Chrome.
    Then report back.

    Btw : Chrome clearly states : URL not resolved.
    Who is the DNS of your device (PC) ?
    What happens if you de activate the DNS blocker on pfSense ?

    You manually edited the DNS config of pfSEnse (1.0.0.1 and 1.1.1.1 are not default). What else did you change ?



  • @Gertjan Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! It was a DNS blocker.
