DNS server +opendns not resolving
So ive recently decided to change my dns server to opendns for filtering. copy and pasted the dns server into general tab.
However when i go on http://opendns.com/welcome/ it shows its not working and when i run the nslookup command it also shows its not working.
My isp is sky broadband if that helps. I dont know if they are running proxy ? something that would prevent this working.
I got it working by changing the client pc windows dns server on network connections. But i shoudlnt have to do that as pfsense should do it globally
it seems dns resolver is causing the problem.
can someone kindly explain for a fix. ive only noticed this since pfsense changed from forwarder to resolver that this functionality is broken now or requires different workaround
Update: again i have manged to resolve this.
Due to how dns resolver works, opendns and other dns server will no longer work.
in order to fix this go to services–> dns resolver--->
disable DNSSEC( as opendns does not support it)
check dns forwarder
it working now i checked http://opendns.com/welcome/ ,however filtering does not work , i just tried to block a domain via the dashboard on opendns and it still allows me to browse to the site.
any suggestions ?
