Clarity on the use of pragmarx/firewall package for Laravel 5.2

so I've just completed the install of antonioribeiro/firewall package for laravel, which essentially allows blacklisting and whitelist of IP address and countries.

I'm working through the section on Artisan Commands, but when i try to run 'php artisan firewall:whitelist country:za' I get the following error:

Command "firewall:whitelist" is not defined.
Did you mean one of these?

I have done all the necessary installation steps outlined in the documentation.

What am i doing wrong ? should I be using this command elsewhere ?
I am aware that these can be manually entered into the DB, but this functionality would be great to have.


I managed to fix the problem:

SOLUTION: When you run 'php artisan vendor:publish' it creates a new file called 'firewall.php' in the config directory. This is where you set default options. Simply change 'use_database' to true and the Database specific commands will work.
