Part 2: Filter Content
Now that ads are blocked (for the most part) lets filter content to keep the interwebs family friendly.
I used OpenDNS. Very simple. I used the free, preconfigured family set up.
On my router, since I couldn’t use the pi-hole there directly, I added OpenDNS nameserver ips. On the router, I changed the DNS settings to the following:
That’s all fine and good for anything not running through the pi-hole. But the devices that do use the pi-hole have no content filtering. The pi-hole is set up to use Google DNS. So, let’s change that.
First, log into the pi. Then run the command:
sudo nano /etc/dnsmasq.conf (I like nano, but use whatever editor you like)
In this file change “server=” lines to use the ip’s from OpenDNS above.
Reboot for good measure and you’re all set. Good clean content on your whole next work.
Next up, the hard part – VPN.
