IP Address Blocklists not blocking?


I have subscribed 4 IP Address Blocklists and enabled the feature, of cause. And applied the firewall rules.
In the firewall I have disabled “Drop packets from and to hostile networks (listed at Spamhaus DROP, etc.)”.
And I have the IPS running.

If I ping an ip address from one of the lists it is blocked. But shows up in the IPS logs and not in the " IP Address Blocklist Logs"!? Why?

The IP Address Blocklists are implemented trough iptables rules and these are executed first, so before IPS, right?

Kind regards,

Hi Patrick.

Welcome to IPFire community,

Excellent question, I am curious as well.
Could you post some logs and screenshots of your Firewall configuration?
