Is a CSF restart required on blocklist updates?

Post by jeff87 »

Hi,

Is a csf restart required to load new blocklist rules into iptables?

We're currently using csf.blocklist to download blocklists every hour. The logs show the updated lists are successfully downloaded and added via IPset. However the new IP addresses do not seem to come into effect until CSF/iptables is restarted.

Is this the correct behaviour?
