    Thank you!

    I happened to be reinstalling AMTM in the middle of the change (because of a big problem with dnscrypt); one moment Option 1 was install AB-Solution and the next Option 1 was install Diversion, which stopped me dead in my tracks totally baffled and unsure what to do until zi later came across this thread.

    (I had to temporarily close OpenVPN server 2 on Port 443 so that I could install pixelserv-tls,)

    Having run without AB-Solution for 2 days whilst I tried to sort my problem out, I felt extremely vulnerable seeing websites and several apps in their true colours.

    A huge “thank you”.

    I installed the test version of pixelserv-tls using the beta installer by @kvic.

    I did a clean install to a freshly formatted stick. Installation of Diversion and pixelserv-tls 2.1.1 was done quickly!!

    Installed and setup from scratch on my AC3100 on 384.7 alpha works great. Had to reinstall and setup dnscrypt though. Otherwise no worries at all.;):)

    How do I set up pixelstats-tls via diversion? There is no option to change the pixelstats ip?
    Edit.
    Never mind. I got it. Need to update to diversion standard.

    So far, my port to Diversion failed. Tried a fresh install which also fails.

    It seems during fresh install, Diversion installer does not check for earlier port data. Is there any way I can reuse the failed port data and install Diversion 4.0?

    Actually, save /opt/share/diversion to somewhere save if found.
    The dnsmasq logs would be in /opt/var/log

    From AMTM to Diversion then when exit. Didn’t go back to AMTM.
    Should it go back? Just wondering.

    Follow dnsmasq no longer have the option of just seeing what is blocked only.
    Now showing unfiltered dnsmasq log. Can we have the show only blocked option?

    Was there not plans to add a GUI in 4.0 or has that been scrapped or pushed back in the development cycle?

    Updated to 4.0 with pixelserv-tls 2.1.1. No issues so far. Awesome work, as always!

    So it appears the block lists have changed with this release? Glad to see the old list archived as custom on the upgrade, but any details on this change and which list is most comparable to the “shooter” list which was removed?
