Just looking at pfsense again and setting up pfBlockerNG, having hit and miss success with it. I’m looking to do category blocking. I understand this is a CPU and RAM hog and unrealistic for a small box setup? My CPU is an Intel ® Atom ™ E3845 and 8GB, but I do have a Sophos XG appliance with upto 16GB available.
It was the porn categories I was looking to block etc, which I previously did with Untangle. Untangle doesn’t have the slickness of some of the configuration items and I think the purchase by Arista hasn’t gone well.
My other line of thought is using a forwarding provider that can do this etc. opendns etc.
As it’s home use I may still revert to Sophos XG.
