Uncommenting line does not activate OpenBL blocklist

Post by saeconsulting »

Hello,

I am using some blocklists from several weeks ago, and now I wanted to test OpenBL. I have uncommented the line in order to use it: Here you have my csf.blocklists lines:

# OpenBL.org 30 day List
# Details: https://www.openbl.org
OPENBL|86400|0|https://www.openbl.org/lists/base_30days.txt

First of all, I don't see any new file at /var/lib/csf location, such as csf.block.OPENBL or something similar. So I suppose it is not blocking based in that list.

Am I correct?, I'm not sure if I have to activate some more options here.

Thank you.

After you uncomment the line you then must restart csf and then lfd:

Code: Select all

csf -r
service lfd restart
Check /var/log/lfd.log for messages regarding the block list retrieval.

Checked the log. It's clear now:

Apr 21 20:41:30 xxxxxx lfd[10985]: Unable to retrieve blocklist OPENBL - Unable to download: 599 - IO::Socket::SSL 1.42 must be installed for https support

¿¿¿???, I believed it is installed. Maybe blocked with my LFD?

OK, I reply myself. I have changed this at csf.conf:

URLGET = "2"

Thank you.
