Unbound resolver and ad blocking
I saw that there are other packages to manage IP aliases to block, but I don't want my webpages taking longer because of TCP timeouts, I want the ads to quickly fail, which overriding the DNS entries seems to do.
So I came across this website http://pgl.yoyo.org/adservers/ that has a nice parse friendly list of ad domains. That got me wondering if there is a simple way with PFSense to point to a URL and import a list of DNS records to override to 127.0.0.1 so they do not resolve. I tried doing a few searches on the forums and did not get an answer on this.
Any ideas how to do this or to get similar results?
This will be part of pfBlockerNG v2.0… If you would like to beta test it, send me a PM..
