BGP Blocking

  • Hi Everyone,

    We use pfSense in a fairly "standard" way, where we have a public subnet routed via our pfsense box. We don't use BGP.

    We are thinking of implementing this device which blocks certains websites by announcing black-listed IPs via BGP, forcing traffic to be routed to the box:

    Am I able to install this box into my network? Given that I currently don't use BGP, what would I have to do to get this going? Basically, I'd like pfsense to route all black-listed IPs to this "White Box", and all other IPs just go to our ISPs router as normal.

    Is this possible?


  • Should work fine. Just a matter of installing the openbgpd package and configuring it the way they require.
