How do I interpret this status report?
« on: October 29, 2017, 01:12:50 pm »
Also, how often does MaxMind update and where do you set or control the update frequency?  Thanks!

Check the General Tab notes:

The pkg utilizes the Free GeoLite2 which is updated once per month...

Thanks, could you summarize how to interpret the status report block?  Curious what the data indicates.

BTW, this is just an amazing add-on to pfSense.  Thank you for your effort and commitment.

Top Header shows the last time the MaxMind GeoIP was updated.

Green check shows pfBlockerNG is enabled with 772 IP entries
Green check shows that DNSBL is enabled with 3,012 domain entries.

The "Alias column" is the name of the IP/DNSBL group that is configured in the IPv4/6/GeoIP/DNSBL tabs
The "Count" is the Number of entries in each Alias/Group.
The "Packet" is the Number of events processed by each Alias/Group.
The "Updated" is the last timestamp where the Alias was updated.
The Green up arrow shows that Rules are enabled for the Alias (IPv4/6 only)
The Black down arrow shows that there are no Firewall rules associated (IPv4/6 only)
The Number in parenthesis is the Number of firewall rules associated (IPv4/6 only)
