PfBlocker doesn't update rules automatically



  • Hello,

    I have 2 different pfSense running.

    First one is a fresh install of 2.1.5 and the second one was recently updated to 2.1.5.

    I have set some rules using pfBlocker the same way in both.

    Now the problem I have is occurring only in the fresh install of pfSense  : pfBlocker won't automatically set up rules in the "rules" menu. I have to go set the sources manually.

    Anyone know how to fix this ?

    Here is a screenshot of the rules that should be added automatically after adding them using pfBlocker.

    Thank you.

    pfBlocker will only apply rules to an interface if there are rules defined. You can overcome that issue by adding a dummy rule to the interface where the rules are not being populated.



  • Thank you for the reply but I found what was the problem.

    In the Interface / Lan menu, I had the IPv4 configuration type set to "Track Interface" for some reasons.

    I set it to "None" and the rules got automatically added in the Firewall/Rules section after enabling pfBlocker.
