shallalist back online
Re: shalla list off
It seems the list is back online now:
However I could not get it to work again with the latest (v3.2.0_3 ) version of pf, I removed the list from dnsbl, added it again and it still does not download

And www.shallalist.de isn't a Internet domain name anymore.
and no one wants to buy that domain name, as he will get slammed by billions of hits

Oups....sorry I got mistaken between the two. So case closed.
I was just signing in to ask some other pfblockerng questions and i saw this..
So what is the deal with Shallalist and UT1?
When Shallalist went offline, i removed it and UT1 completely because... well, what's the point?
did they bring it back? I tried UT1 back in the day. it seemed to not work nearly as well as shallalist.
Is it worth it for BBcan to even incorporate these into pfblockerng? it almost seems not worth it if the blacklist maintainers can simply take down the site.. As if he doesn't already do enough as it is for us..

The last known tar.gz published is still online on waybackmachine at web (dot) archive (dot) org if you want to upload it to your box a local file to /var/db/pfblockerng/shallalist.tar.gz, then edit your /conf/config.xml to change the shallalist feed url to that local directory /var/db/pfblockerng/shallalist.tar.gz, save config.xml, next run shell command:
then go back to pfblocker and force a cron. Shallalist then can still work as a decent category filtering base and worth maintaining adding in your own static list if desired instead of numerous local file DNSBL feeds added of other Adguard/AdBlock/pihole blacklists converted over from original formats as I was accumulating, have my current tweaked shallalist.tar.gz beefed up to 41.8MB up for grabs if its worth/allowed to be hosted anywhere until if/when the original developer re-opens Shalla Secure Services, as mentioned before its domain went down, in another country one day.
@smolka_j Both might better function their original purposes though, Shallalist/UT1 both built originally toward SquidGuard, if maybe for these category options to have a "whitelist" "deny/block" and "allow if not blocked/disable" selections/toggles added as SquidGuard has because certain categories listed I would think would better work as whitelists for some to make sure other general feeds don't block all
