Unable to block on pfsense



  • Hi everyone,

    I was originally trying to block facebook using pfsense. I followed this guide ( https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=43837.0 ) but was unable to block facebook. I figured it was because facebook had so many ips so I decided to try with another website with one ip. However, I am unable to block that website either.

    The website is eyedonation.org  (ip: 184.154.245.184)

    I tried creating an alias and a rule for it. But again, I was able to access the site.
    I then tried the DNS forwarder and was unsuccessful at blocking the site too.
    I am still able to go to eyedonation.org
    I have attached images below for a clearer look at what I did.
    Please advise.
    Thanks for your time!








  • If only we could see your actual LAN firewall rules…



  • Is this what you meant?




  • Just as I thought.

    Firewall rules are processed top-down, first-match.  Since your block rules are AFTER your Allow All rules, of course nothing will be blocked.  Move them up ahead of the Allow All rules.

    Thank you so much!  :)
