pfBlockerNG crashing ubound dns Resolver


  • Hello,

    I have run into a little problem. After switching to pfBlocker from Squid, I have found that unbound is crashing. Then shortly afterwards the whole system freezes up requiring a power cycle to get things going again. Anyone else have the same issue?

    I'm running a Netgate SG1100 with ~998MiB of RAM running pfSense ver. 2.4.5

    pfBlocker is mostly all default settings

    I have DNSBL Enabled with Shalla's List enabled (only about 25% of the list is active, including the big one Porn).

    Perhaps I should just bite the bullet and upgrade to a stand alone system? although that's not really in the budget atm.

    Thanks in Advance

    Not enough memory to handle the large Shallalist category.
    You can try the new Unbound Python mode which is less memory intensive.


  • @bbcan177 That's what I was afraid of. Guess I'm asking Santa for a computer so I can get the most out of this.
