Geo IP block

Post by jauro » September 20th, 2017, 2:57 pm

Hi all,
I have such a problem: I have activated the geoip with block for many nations, for example the Czech republic and it works perfectly.
But if I create a rule where as a source is a ip of a Czech republic and destination to a webserver behind ipfire I can not reach the site.
The rule is at the top of the list.
It means that the geoip wins over the rule?
ipfire 2.19 103

In order to solve it more data is needed:
1. Did you use/activated proxy/squid? If yes - need to create the rule with source = Firewall: source of traffic to Czech server will be kernel/firewall.
2. GeoIP - did you use it for not directions - in and out traffic?

I have blocked incoming traffic from all the world except a few IPs - literally I blocked all countries
I have blocked exit traffic to 70%-80% of the countries - except DE, US and a few more.

I had same problems until I created rules for both firewall as source - I use proxy in transparent mode.

Hope it helps,
