Country IP Blocks is considering offering free ACLs to pfblocker users



  • Now that we have updated our our software and databases, we are very close to 100% accuracy on our Country IP Blocks Database. We are looking to offer pfblocker users 6 months of free data (it cannot be redistributed), to help us test our latest manifestations.

    Our latest manifestation will likely include network aggregation. We are looking to develop this specific product for pfblocker and other similar packages.

    Tell us who we need to talk to and we will see if we can get matters started.

    Best regards,

    Stewart White

  • That is awesome!!!! Tyvm



  • We are also offering three tiers of plans: Home/personal users $99; Non-profits $149.00; Commercial users $179.00. Starting in August we will also offer monthly subscription services.

    Regardless of the above, we would like to do something special for pfblocker users.



  • That is awesome CIPB. Looking forward to what is offered. :-)



  • Astounding.  Thank you for reaching out.



  • Thanks CIPB! :)

    As I can't include these updated lists in pfblocker package, I suggest pfblocker users to conatct CIPB.

    Why not Marcello?



  • Talk to us and let us know what it is needed.

    Why not Marcello?

    If CIPB were included in the pfBlocker package, it would be redistributed with every pfBlocker install/update.
    That would violate the terms of the CIPB offer, as outlined above.

    That's my take on it.


  • Banned

    But couldnt one user do that and distribute to others?

    I have no idea how many sysadmins uses pfblocker around the world.
    So it's hard to say how an agreement can be done.



  • It's always worth discussing in order to see what can be worked out.

    It's always worth discussing in order to see what can be worked out.

    Possibilities:
    Allowing pfBlocker devs occasional access to freshen up the lists in pfBlocker.

    Allowing individual pfBlocker users to register w/ CIPB and receive some sort of list access in return.

    Allowing pfBlocker to regain it's former access to CIPB lists, in trade for publishing a CIPB logo/badge on the pfBlocker tab/page in pfSense.
    (Probably needs approval by marcello/tommyboy and/or others)

    That's what I have off the top of my head.
