So, decided to switch firewalls, it was between pfsense, Untangled, or just roll my own linux server as my firewall (I’ve done that before and it gives me the most control of things).

Starting with pfsense, here is some key information for me (if I have to resetup this stuff)

DNS Blocklists https://firebog.net/

block porn hosts file: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/StevenBlack/hosts/master/alternates/porn/hosts

set it and forget it OpenDNS block adult content:

  • 208.67.222.123
  • 208.67.220.123

Sorry this was just an explosion of links….not a lot of notes but I remember what each one solved for me ;-)
