Cannot define table bogonsv6

  • Hey,

    I've tried to set up a new Open VPN rule on pfSense 2.1-BETA0 (i386) built on Tue Oct 30 10:31:30 EDT 2012 yesterday. Background: We have three OpenVPN Road Warriors and a special machine in our network which shall not be allowed to connect via VPN. So what I did:

    1. Went to Firewall rules
    2. OpenVPN
    3. Created a rule to block all traffic on OpenVPN to this machine

    After that every 10 seconds a notification popped up saying:

    php: : New alert found: There were error(s) loading the rules: /tmp/rules.debug:118: cannot define table bogonsv6: Cannot allocate memory pfctl: Syntax error in config file: pf rules not loaded - The line in question reads [118]: table <bogonsv6>persist file "/etc/bogonsv6

    I've deleted this rule but the notification still went on, so I commented this line via shell and it was gone. Then I uncommented it again.

    I guess it was a wrong approach to block OpenVPN traffic to a specific IP. Can you guys help me out with that?


  • Go to system advanced and increase the limits for the tables.

  • Hey,

    thanks for the reply, but can you be a little more specific? Which one: "Firewall Maximum Tables" or "Firewall Maximum Tables Entries"? Both are blank.


    I've increased the "Firewall Maximum Table Entries" to 200000 since the word count for /etc/bogonsv6 was 63301. Hope this will solve the problem.
