I am considering ways of integrating the Spamhaus Drop lists into our environment. Is it possible to define an IPSET using networks defined in an external file, so something like this:
[IPSET shdrop]
include: /etc/pve/firewall/spamhaus/drop.txt

i don't think so. but you can loop through the file and add the entries to a specific ipset

The best way is to block IPs from any list on your border gateway. So you will block offending traffic like this and not on the PMX level because you will waste your cpu/ram and so on.

Good luck / bafta.
