-devel UI not capturing blocked DNSBL rule stats count in effect?
Ive been learning PfBlocker and Pfsense - so please excuse any newbie related issues...
I just had Netgate support check into my set up and all seems good... One of the support agents set up a very simple DNSBL blocking rule for the url - www.nba.com - we wanted to test to see the UI for pfBlocker would show the hits because it was not showing any hits prior and I got them to look...
a few of the support agents helped me start to get results in the DNSBL ui - phishing and some ad blocking lists started showing hits... but many others remain zeroed...
but the very simple rule for blocking www.nba.com - never showed any hits - no matter how I tried accessing it.. it DID block that site when it was active ( something is working ) ...
but it never logged it in the UI. I tried dig / terminal / the browser ( safari )....
Is there perhaps some bug in the -devel version that anyone knows of ?
or how might you go about debugging or figuring on this issue?
- thank you in advance...

When I clicked on that link, I saw some Being Sport ( ? ) site using french (?)language, talking a lot about american basketball.
I've already pfBlocker running, so most of the publicity was already stripped.
I went here : Firewallp > fBlockerNG > DNSBL
I entered nba.com under "Blacklists".
I forced reloaded pfBlcokerNG-devel.
Re visiting nba.com gave me :
Does this count for a hit being showed to you ;)
Btw : when you white- and blacklist, there are no Alerts ...
does that explain your "never showed any hits - no matter how I tried accessing it" ?
I did find this :
I think I figured it out...
was using wifi DHCP and that was not letting the DNSBL stats to update properly - even tho firewall was blocking properly.
So once I set the wifi to bridge mode - all started working as expected... basically bad config causing it.
