There were error(s) loading the rules

Hi Everyone,

PfSense 2.3.3-RELEASE

I can't seem to figure out where this problem is coming from which started a few months ago.  Now and then this error comes up and drops our internet connection for a split second.

There were error(s) loading the rules: /tmp/rules.debug:129: could not parse host specification - The line in question reads [129]: table <time_chu_nrc_ca> { }

I tried adjusting the NTP Server values and looking at the firewall rules without success.  Appreciate all those who can point me in the right direction.


Is this something pfBlocker stuffed into the ruleset or is this some rule you made?

Hi Kom,

I'm using Snort but not pFblocker on the firewall.  I looked into my firewall rules and I don't have anything in there that would block


Is there supposed to be a . at the end of the hostname?


What rules do you have that refer to this time server?  I use for my NTP def but there is nothing in the rules about it.

That's where I'm having issues.  I don't have referenced anywhere in NTP or in firewall rules.  I use, and for my time servers so i don't know where this error is coming from.
