    Setting up a DNS server that forward to OpenDNS?


    Hello,

    In my small office I currently have setup DD-WRT with OpenDNS as a filesharing site blocking method.

    However, when they take these laptops outside, they connect their own hotspot and unblock all file sharing sites.

    Is it possible to setup my own DNS server, which forwards to my OpenDNS setup?

    Am I looking into something like a DNS proxy setup?

    :)

  2. Will these batch files work to change DNS servers to OpenDNS and back?


    I frequent a local library and, in order to access their wifi, the OpenDNS servers must be removed for some reason. I can switch them back once I've gotten past their acknowledgment page but I simply cannot get to this page with the custom servers. Consequently, I was looking for a batch script that would allow me to quickly remove, then re-add the OpenDNS servers.

  3. DNS server causing problem

    Hi Andrea,

    DNS is a server that translates websites' addresses so that browsers can connect to them. If the addresses become outdated or the server has issues, problems and DNS errors occur. For us to provide an accurate solution, we would need you to answer the following
    questions:

    • Which build, version and edition of Windows is installed on your computer?
    • What changes have you made to your device before this issue occurred?
    • Are you experiencing the same issue regardless if you are trying to be connected to a wired or wireless connection?

    For initial troubleshooting, we suggest deleting the DNS cache. This can refresh the DNS files and settings on your PC. Follow these steps to delete the DNS cache:

    • Using Search type Command Prompt.
    • Form the search results, right click on Command Prompt (Desktop app) and then choose Run as administrator.
    • In the Command Prompt window, type ipconfig /flushdns and then hit the Enter key.
    • Once done, restart your computer and then check if the same issue persists.

    We are looking forward to your response.

    What is the point of this opendns is a great DNS with protection so why would you want to change it by default a lot the time the router is set as DNS?
