PfBlockerNG blocking Xbox One X internet access
I have got the PfBlockerNG-devel up and running recently however have noticed that it is blocking the Xbox console from connecting to the net. Is there anyway for me to tell PfBlockerNG to allow outbound traffic for Xbox?
I have tried whitelisting relevant domains (https://www.reddit.com/r/pihole/comments/gmhyyc/is_microsoft_requiring_even_more_domains_to_be/) under DNSBL however that hasn't resolved it. Xbox only seems to be able to connect to the internet when I deselect LAN from the Outbound Firewall Rules under IP settings tab in PfBlockerNG. The Xbox in connected to managed switch which is connected to one of the pfSense interfaces.
Yes, you can add a firewall rule to pass that traffic from the xbox as long as you have the rule ordering set correctly.
You can probably also whitelist it in pfBlocker.
Thanks, this resolves!
