[Solved] DNS Firewall test error
I bought a Rasp 4B and installed latest eBlocker version.
Actually I've the following problem :
1. For the a) DNS Firewall and b) PATTERN Blocker test there is no green ok arrow
but a red exclamation mark ? ? Get the following message every time I test
a) Possible causes:
Your device uses a cached DNS response. Please start the test again in a few
b) Possible causes:
The connection to your Internet provider is interrupted.
How can I solve these problems ?
Please share more infos about your setup: s. https://eblocker.org/community/announcements/before-posting-here-please-read/#post-117
Please also share the output of a traceroute to www.eblocker.org as described here:
Meanwhile after long testing and configuring I started from scratch .
Now I'm on the air aigain but things are nearly the same (TOR turned off now)
O.k. ! Here are my specs:
1. Raspberry : 4B - 2GB
2. eblocker : 2.58 List 47
3. network mode : auto
3. network setting : 192.168.178.77 255.255.255.0 192.168.178.1
4. Fritz Box :7590 , DHCP on , eblocker always .... .178.77
5. eBlocker DNS FW : Custom list - from list in upper earlier post
6. Client network : 192.168.178.27 255.255.255.0 GW 192.168.178.1
7. HTTPS : ON, Zertifikat installed o.k.
8. Browser : Opera 74.0.3911.218 - latest version
9. TOR / VPN : OFF
After starting from scratch it took me a while to get eblocker to operate. A lot of time I spend to find the location in the FB-7590 to activate or deactivate DHCP server. This is good hidden now in the FB-7590 ? !
I can operate eBlocker now but not all results are "green positive " in STATUS .This will not change while testing many times.
As said I'm happy that's eblocker is alive now again but I'm not sure that all is correct configured ?
But still two red exclamation marks in relation to the DNS cache . How can I get rid of them ? Can I have control of the DNS Cache ?
PS: I just read some of the very good info on your web pages here and cleared the cache of my browser. Status DNS Firewall now ok.
In STATUS I've always got a hint about the DOMAIN Blocker ! Clearin DNS Firewall cache didn't help .
Another user reported the 7590 not to be compatible with Automatic Network Mode: https://eblocker.org/community/bugs-features/connection-error-office-365-imap-account-with-eos-2-5-8-macos-11-2-2/#post-3399
Just a quick guess: maybe changing to Individual Network Mode helps here too?
(I‘ll look into your post and the posted results tomorrow. Today my day is packed already).
@rudi Can you please check if your client uses eBlocker DNS with the following on the command shell (cmd)
Please post screenshot of result here.
that's the screenshot you wanted, eblocker turned on or off - same results . As you can see it's one of the servers from my DNS Firewall custom round robin list. FB-7590 has different ones.
BTW tracert allways have the same ( false ? ) results whether DETAULT, TOR or Custom is selected :
@rudi Please try to set eBlocker to Individual Network Mode. Your results show eBlocker is not routing properly in Auto Mode.
Allthough I think that I've more experience then the usual user of PC's and hardware aso , but meanwhile I think I maybe messed up all and its better to start from scratch w 2.62 .
1.Is it necessary to switch FB-7590 to " DHCP OFF " before first start of 2.62 ?
2. Which IP adress for eblocker must or can I choose in manual mode ? Where and when ?
Install the mac and IP-ad in the FB-7590 list before fist start of 2.62 ?
3. Which gateway adress must I use in manual mode ? Where an when ?
4. Are thers any modifications in 2.62 for the use of the FB-7590 ?
THX in advace.
I read these pages before but was surprised when my FB-7590 suddenly got a different IP adress. If you did'nt notice this you have to reset your FB. Lucky is who had saved his settings.
I'll try it another time w. 2.62 now and hope to get better results as before.
BTW Had anybody checked what happend if " Another DNS " server was selected manually in the FB-7590, see picture, f.i. what happend if the eblocker IP ..168.178.88
is set there at the bottom edge of the picture ?
Had anybody checked what happend if " Another DNS " server was selected manually in the FB-7590,
eBlocker takes over DNS (unless you deactivate it). So the fritzbox settings have no effect once eBlocker is active for your device.
@rudi As you stated in your other post you’ve finally managed to get „all green“ in the tests. For other readers it would be nice if you could share here what the solution was. Individual mode?
No : " big surprise" I'm running now in Automode.
But it took a while , because at first automode messed up things , f. i. eBlocker had suddenly IP of Router or Router has IP adress of formerly ebBlocker's adress, sometimes switching while running without my influence ?
Meanwhile I tried Expert mode , but was confused and didn'nt know where to set the adresses shown in the lined box ? ? In Automode the IP ad in the FB is still the standard AVM ad . . . 178.1
I reset and shut down , new start . I think I better followed the instructions this time. All but the
HTTPS filtering then was o.k. It took a while still I find the correct folder to install the Zertifikate there. With this problem it seems to me I'm not allone, bcs a friend of mine had same Zertifakat installing problems.
On another Win-10 Notebook I still fight this battle althoug I did is succesfull in Opera and Firefox on the WIN PC ? ? ! ! 🙂
Thx - Keep healthy !
