DNSBL doesn't work



  • Hi community i have the folliwing issue, blocking the web sites with DNSBL doesn't work, but with ip works fine



  • Make sure;

    • Your clients/workstations behind pfSense are pointing to the pfSense box for DNS (normally the LAN address of your pfSense firewall)

    • using "nslookup" tool, query the pfSense DNS directly (normally the LAN IP address) and test for domain names that should be blocked

    • Do you need to check the box TLD under pfBlockerNG so that www.domainname.com and xxx.domainname.com is also blocked?

    DNSBL works great, I suspect it's a setup issue on your pfSense and/or network.
