Diversion & YazFi play well together?

    Will Diversion work on guest networks? I have created segregated Lans using YazFi. I have Rokus on its own network for privacy, but would like to use the capability of ad blocking on all subnets within my network. My understanding is that it will only work within the same group as ip 192.168.1.2. I am hoping there is a way to add all the 192.168.?.0/24 addresses in the mix.

    Perhaps better suited to the YazFi thread, but yes they work together. If you specify the router's IP as the guest's DNS (or leave it blank since YazFi will default it to the router), then the guest will be able to harness Diversion and pixelserv-tls (if installed)

    Okay was hoping for a solution for all subnets (main + guest) not just a specific ip range since I currently have 192.168.x.0 set up where x is 3 different options. I know it is taxing on the hardware, but it is a router after all. I wasn't sure if the pkg I needed to focus more on was the YazFi side or the Diversion side of things to get this configured correctly. I also have vpns as part of the mix.

    Well, dnsmasq will already forward dns requests from your "main subnet" to Diversion by default, if you configure your router correctly per 'standard install'. Handling the vpn's usually just requires adding some routing rules, depending on your needs.

    okay thanx. New to all this custom networking stuff. I guess I will just tinker till I get it right. I didnt like using Diversion since it caused my ip to be leaked. I am currently running with Nordvpn but may change once my subscription is up in a couple of months.
