Blocking TLDs - Skynet/Diversion/Dnsmasq?

^Tripper^

Hi folks. I’m running Merlin’s 384.14 on an 86U with Skynet and Diversion and pixelserv. Wondering if there’s a way to block off a whole TLD?

From what I can tell, the only option is to create a ‘dnsmasq.conf.add’ as Skynet and Diversion doesn’t allow something as drastic as blocking a whole TLD (probably with good reason).. unless I’m missing something obvious.:D

I’ve tried creating the file in jffs- config with the following;

Code:
address=/.xyz/0.0.0.0
address=/.pro/0.0.0.0
Now that seems to work but DNS lookups have slowed down; pages take longer to load. I’ve also tried using pixelserv’s address and that seems to work the same.

From a purely technical standpoint, what’s the best way to do this?

Thank you!!

Your syntax is wrong, use this and don't use the pixelserv-tls IP, just the null IP, otherwise pixelserv-tls will be extremely busy creating all those certificates for nothing IMHO.
Code:
address=/tld/0.0.0.0
eg:
Code:
address=/xyz/0.0.0.0
address=/pro/0.0.0.0
