One (pfsense) ring to rule them all?

We are starting to roll out pfsense routers as edge routers in a number of locations. I keep seeing references and hints of a centralized management system that would allow me to do things like blacklist an IP address across all devices with a single command. Is there a video on this and I missed it? Was the product scrapped before it got off the ground? Is it out there and I just can’t find it?

Yeah you can do this with PFblockerng or just create a rule right on WAN interface to block any to said IP

Can I do it from a single interface and have it apply on a dozen different routers all over the world?

As far as I know Pfsense does not have a management suite for multiple pfsense boxes.

pfsense does not offer a central management, but you could build your own list the pfblocker pulls from.

PaloAlto’s Minemeld which is an open source project will allow you to create your own custom lists which can be imported into pfblocker

I use it to give me a central place to update block and allow lists on many different brands of firewalls including pfsense with pfblocker as well as pi-hole.
