Title: GEOIP Download GEO List
Post by: dpbklyn on March 30, 2017, 03:24:42 am

I am new to OPNSense and to open source firewalls in general.

I am trying to implement GEOIP blocking and can't seem to figure out how to download more locations--my location list ends at Anguilla(not).

When I installed the GEOIP package the documentation said that I had to manually download the data files:

GeoIP does not ship with the actual data files. You must download
them yourself! Please run:
# /usr/local/bin/geoipupdate.sh

I am not sure how to do this.  Is this something that can be done from within the GUI, or do I need to log in to the CLI?

Thank you for taking the time to help a noob.
