Blocking Microsoft Traffic In PFSense

If you are using windows 10, Microsoft has a lot of hidden traffic that suddenly downloads on the background and your network starts to crawl especially when you are in a country where the Internet Services are all fucked up like PLDT, Smart or Globe.

In PfSense you can block the traffic through PfBlockerNG. You can navigate through Firewall > PfBlockerNG. Click the DNSBL tab as shown in the image

At the bottom of the page, you can add the ff entries inside TLD Blacklist as seen on the image.
