I am using DNSmasq, OpenDNS and DYNDNS. DYNDNS is for my FTP site, and I am using OPEN DNS to filter porn from my kids itouch/ipad. However, I would like a few computers to have the capability to bypass openDNS, and pass through to a fast DNS server like google or similar. I would also like to fowrard all traffice from DYNDNS to my FTP server. Any ideas? This is what I have thus far..


Its not working thus far, can someone help me accomplish what I want to do?

Welcome to Server Fault! Home networking questions are off topic for serverfault. It may be on topic for Superuser but check their faq and search their site before asking. – Iain Jun 13 '12 at 7:22

dnsmasq has an option to tag hostnames or MAC addresses with tags like "red" or "kids", and then serve them different DHCP options basing on their tag.

Serve kids' devices with censoring DNS server IPs, and other devices with non-censoring DNS servers.

That would work only if the kids don't know how to set up their devices' networking to static mode :)

You can additionally enforce the policy on the firewall by dropping packets going to port 53/udp and 53/tcp from kids' MAC addresses to any non-whitelisted host.

However, that would be of no use if your kids turn on 3G on their devices :3
