pfSense does not allow you to specify ::/0 | by Teri Radichel | Biting Bugs | February 2024


Unable to block all IPv6 IPs using pfSense rules

In light of the fact that pfSense ipv6 blocking no longer works like it used to and does not seem to work properly…

I thought that in addition to just blocking the protocol, maybe I would block the actual IP addresses. I tried adding ::/0 but you can’t because there are no 0s you can select from in the list:

I really wish it worked like it did on the 3100 and you could completely block IPv6 in light of all the ways IPv6 can be attacked.
