Basically I want to add a manual DNS entry to forward requests to xxxx.com to a local IP, something I had been doing on my Pihole for some time. Is that possible using this...

    DNS Filter DoT Support

    Hello, I was wondering if a checkbox can be added in the DNS Filter page, to also redirect port 853 instead of dropping packets if they're not for the same filter IP? Pretty much all of the preconfigured DNS services now support DoT and DoH, and I run a pihole VPS which I forward my DNS...

    Block All DNS Except

    Is there a way to block all DNS on port 53 except for a specified device? I looked at SkyNET and the Asus WebUI and didn't see anything that really fit the bill. I could really just block 53 across the entire LAN since my DNS server uses 443 for DNS requests. Thanks,

    DNS Filtering & Avast Antivirus

    Using the DNS Filtering on the router and setting it to OpenDNS works for MOST things, but Avast virus updates are failing. If I turn it off on the router and set the DNS on the PC to be openDNS servers, the updates work fine, so I'm pretty confident it isn't opendns or avast at fault. Any...

    Force LAN clients to use local DNS when DNS filtering is enabled

    Hi there. I have DNS filtering turned on, and I'm using "OpenDNS Family" for the global filter with specific hosts using "OpenDNS Home." This will obviously force all DNS lookups to use OpenDNS. This is fine. I don't want to change that. However, when I'm connected to my LAN, I want to be able...
