Description

Page: https://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/packages/pfblocker.html

Feedback:

The action options on the page only mention "Alias Only" but in newer releases there are many more options which are nuanced.

Form the module's context help: (pfBlockerNG-devel 3.1.0_4)

'Alias' Rules:
'Alias' rules create an alias for the list (and do nothing else). This enables a pfBlockerNG list to be used by name, in any firewall rule or pfSense function, as desired.

Options - Alias Deny,  Alias Permit,  Alias Match,  Alias Native
'Alias Deny' can use De-Duplication and Reputation Processes if configured.
'Alias Permit' and 'Alias Match' will be saved in the Same folder as the other Permit/Match Auto-Rules
'Alias Native' lists are kept in their Native format without any modifications.
