Pfsense block ip from internet
Using the pfblockerng with pfsense to block ip addresses by
As an addition to my baseline configuration guide, a pfBlocker guide has been requested frequently. I’ve been working on a guide for a while now, but due to the continuous evolution of pfBlocker and pfSense, it’s never been done. To allow me to publish some material, I’ve decided to divide the guide into two parts. The first section will concentrate on pfBlocker’s more robust IP blocking features. The second section, which will be published later, will concentrate on the DNS blocking capabilities of pfBlockers, which are still under development.
This guide is an extension of my pfSense baseline setup guide, and it demonstrates how to use pfBlockerNG to handle ingress and egress from a SOHO network through the use of blocklists.
BBCan177 developed pfBlockerNG, a pfSense kit based on Marcello Coutinho and Tom Schaefer’s previous work. The goal was to expand pfSense’s core firewall features by adding the ability to use IP and DNS control lists to further control and manage inbound and outbound access via the firewall.

Pfsense 2.4.4 – firewall rules – permit one site and block any
I’d like to use the Firewall rules to prevent one of these devices on the network from accessing the internet. I have a static IP address for the one I want to block, and I also know its MAC address.
I just can’t seem to figure out how to make a rule that effectively blocks internet access for that particular device. However, I do want that computer to be able to access the network’s internal resources, such as shared drives and printers.
(a) If I have an IP address on my internal LAN, why would blocking it from accessing the WAN (which is outside my router and I would assume is considered the Internet) prevent that IP address from accessing the Internet? (b) So why does blocking that IP address from accessing the LAN (I suppose that any IP address behind the NAT is on the LAN and any IP in this network behind the LAN will reroute) prevent that IP address from accessing the Internet? I guess I just answered my own question because I then enabled the IP address to access the local network 192.168.1.0 /24. (in CIDR format)
Pfsense – how to block traffic from an internal ip address
Hello, I’m having a weird problem and am looking for some assistance. PFsense 2.4.3 is installed on my system. It’s been amazing so far, and I’m really pleased with it. I have some IP cameras and want to give them internal access (to the DVR) but not external access. PiHole is blocking one of the ebay IP cameras from phoning home. I’d like to block access to the internet for this IP address 192.168.1.219. I ran some experiments on a Windows Server virtual machine. Pinging from one VM to my physical box was the subject of my experiment. 192.168.1.220 is the IP address of the physical device. 192.168.1.219 is the IP address of the virtual machine. 192.168.1.1 is the IP address of Pfsense. Pfsense can be pinged from both physical and virtual machines. Both the physical and virtual worlds will ping each other. Under Lan (top rule), I created the following firewall rule: IPv4 protocol 192.168.1.219 is the IP address of the server. * Destination: * Destination: * Destination: * Destination: * Destination: * Destination: * Destination: * Destination: * There is no queue. Blank schedule Block Traffic Test (description) When the rule is allowed, neither the VM nor the Physical will ping each other. Pfsense can be pinged by physical devices, but not by virtual machines. Isn’t anything running smoothly? I use Screenconnect remote app, which is mounted on the virtual machine. With screenconnect and the firewall rule enabled, I can connect to the VM. I’m absolutely perplexed. Isn’t it true that this law can halt all traffic? My intention was to activate the rule so that Wan net or Wan address will be blocked. How come the firewall will disable pinging but not screenconnect?

How to block or allow an ip address and port in pfsense
My boss wants me to find out how to restrict all internet access to a single device, not just IE or a single browser. I’m not sure if it’s possible, but if it is, I need to know how. I tried creating a custom rule that blocked all programs and ports to a particular computer’s IP address. It was a complete failure. Is there anyone who can help?
Unfortunately, we are still using the Windows server firewall before I can persuade them to update, which I will do with the aid of my instructor. I’m modifying the firewall on my desktop and blocking access from my laptop. For both the local IP and remote IP portions, I used the laptop’s static internal IP. Would I use the gateway’s public IP as the remote IP, or would that block all user traffic? I couldn’t find a rule anywhere that would block all WAN traffic to a particular IP, so I tried to make one.
If this is just for one machine and the user doesn’t have admin rights (which he shouldn’t, but you can double-check), then manually configure the TCP/IP properties on that PC and leave the Gateway address blank.
