Could not resolve host when update DNSBL feeds

  • Hello Forum!

    I just set DNS over TLS following this guide: link. Copied the given lines to custom options, so now my Custom option lokks like this:

    include: /var/unbound/pfb_dnsbl.*conf
    name: "."
    forward-ssl-upstream: yes

    I'm using a DNS server from Austria, and running the pfBlockerNG devel version (latest). I pasted the DNS server IP under General Setup --> DNS Server Address, and set Gateway as WAN_PPPOE, enabled DNSSEC, DNS Server Override is unchecked, and Disable DNS Forwarder is checked.

    I have these feeds enabled:

    • EasyList feeds
    • ADs
    • Malicious
    • Cryptojackers
    • Abuse_C2
    • hpHosts
    • Microsoft Hosts containing 4 host lists from github (3 Crazy Max's lists and one fron Jason Hill)

    Wanted to whitelist some domains, but when i hit update, all of the feeds says "Could not resolve host when update". But if i copy an address, like, in the browser it is resolved.

    I know i made something or missed something, but i don't know what. Can anybody help me out?

    Thanks any help anyone can provide to resolve this issue!

    Wait .... that's old info.
    As the blog states, it's build in now. See
    You are using 2.4.4-p3, right ?

  • Hey! Thanks for come by. Yes, i run the latest pfSense.

    The extra info about the custom lines was hidden way too at the end of the blog, but i've found it after my post, and now i changed my settings according to that.

    Strange thing, but changing the DNS server to UncensoredDNS, seems now everything working fine. I think i will let Applied Privacy know about this behaviour.

    Maybe do you have a clue why could i resolve the hostname in the browser, but not in the DNSBL feeds update?
