Description

Currently there is an option for DNS over HTTPS/TLS Blocking located

Firewall --> pfBlockerNG --> DNSBL --> DNSBL SafeSearch

This should be removed and only Feed lists used for blocking DoH instead, for the following reasons:

  • The SafeSearch list is static and DoH servers can be added and removed often, and unless a pfSense update is done, the list will not reflect the new changes.
  • Feeds can allow faster deployment of DoH server changes
  • There is already a DoH section in feeds
  • It is a little confusing to have 2 places to do DoH blocking
  • Most instructions assume a block list is the way to block DoH
  • the 'SafeSearch/DNS over HTTPS/TLS Blocking' utilises the whitelist system to prevent double entries which can be confusing until this is explained

NB: You can convert the current SafeSearch DoH list in to a feed
