Spamassassin URIBL access not working through Pihiole

Please follow the below template, it will help us to help you!

Expected Behaviour:

URIBL lookup works, testing it with “host -tTXT test.uribl.com.multi.uribl.com

Actual Behaviour:

Returns:
test.uribl.com.multi.uribl.com descriptive text “127.0.0.1 -> Query Refused. See http://uribl.com/refused.shtml for more information [Your DNS IP: xx.xx.xx.xx]”

Debug Token:

https://tricorder.pi-hole.net/4p4fnv255c

If I take pihole out of the loop, then the URIBL test works.

What is the expected response? Are you using any lists other than stock or any added blocks?

No, just a few whitelisted URLs to allow some web pages to work.

The answer to the test should be :

test.uribl.com.multi.uribl.com descriptive text “permanent testpoint”

Note that the request is not being blocked by Pihole, but URIBL is responding to the request by blocking/denying it.

Using stock lists on my local install here results in:

host -tTXT test.uribl.com.multi.uribl.com
test.uribl.com.multi.uribl.com descriptive text "permanent testpoint"

I think you will need to contact URIBL and see why you are getting a denial.

I also tested the link with more than the original block lists, and also received the correct response:

host -tTXT test.uribl.com.multi.uribl.com
test.uribl.com.multi.uribl.com descriptive text "permanent testpoint"

Here’s a link to a solution which adds code to the pihole system which causes any requests to URIBL to bypass pihole. I can confirm that this seems to work a treat:
