    Need more details about how you defined these domains. Also ensure that your LAN devices are only using pfSense for DNS resolution or it can bypass DNSBL filering.



  • @BBcan177 can please help me out that why country blocking dont work when I enable the squid in pfsense.
    I tried all variations but still country blocking is not work for me when i ennable squid and when i disable the squid its start blocking web sites on country base.
    Note: I m facing problem with country blocking only means AD blocking is working fine with squid in pfblocker .

    It sounds like your using Squid's proxy that seems to bypass pfBlockerNG...use one or the other but not both simultaneously.

    I didn't get u by this statement...means I have to use squid or pfblocker at one time but not both simultaneously??



  • @zaber01 Yes...in your case, I would stick to pfBlockerNG.



  • @NollipfSense ok one more thing that I m not very much familiar with pfblockerNG ,
    Is pfblockerNG capable for domain blocking . Means I want to block HTTP and HTTPS sites; Is pfblocker can do this?
    And what about antivirus ...I think antivirus is totally dependent on squid.



  • @zaber01 I run both Squid for the antivirus only as well as pfBlockerNG; however, I do not use Squid's proxy server. I believe that's where you had the conflict. Your wanting to block sites is the purpose of install pfBlockerNG, specifically to prevent clients from accessing potential harmful sites.
    I would suggest spending sometime in this section of the forum learning more...we all had to do this.
