Alot of blocked ip:s



  • i have the latest version of pfsense installed, and i have an openvpn client installed(hide my ass), i dont have any other addons installed.

    i have noticed that my firewall blocks ip:s all the time, theres a new ip every second in the firewall log, and the ip:s are from all of the World.
    and allmost all of them are trying to connect to my openvpn interface. and there all on different ports.

    Does anyone know why this is happening?
    Or is this a common thing?

    do i need any other addons to get a better saftey in my router?



  • They're being blocked, what's the problem?
    If you don't want them showing up in your logs, go to Status -> System Logs -> Settings, and uncheck "Log packets blocked by the default rule."



  • there´s no problem, im just asking if this is a common thing or if im under some kind of hacker attack?



  • It's a common thing. Tons of port scans come in from all sorts of places. If you have default drop logging turned on, your logs will fill up fast.



  • ok, so i dont have to worry then, is it possible that the log would be so big so it could cause a pretty full harddrive?

    pfSense uses a Circular Log format to maintain a constant log size. There are multiple benefits to this method, mainly that the log files cannot grow and fill up your filesystems.
