I've set up my home router(linksys) so it uses opendns.com as a content filter. I followed their simple guidelines. It works, but not as expected.
I have three computers at home running Ubuntu. One laptop; two desktops; one desktop serves as a server (I may have more, if a friend asks me to fix their Windows machine).
Also, I use the routers MAC filter so only the machines I allow can access the internet.
- Do I have to install the dynamic IP updating scripts (DDClient for Linux or the openDNS updater for Windows) into every machine I have or can I just install it in the server (which is always on), so it updates the dynamic IP in my openDNS account? Does every machine have a unique dinamic IP?
- I brought a Windows machine to fix and it is able to access the internet even though I did not grant it permission on the router. This happened after I started using openDNS. Is this normal?
