Pi-Hole with DNS-Over-HTTPS via Cloudflare

RaspberryPi Logo

RaspberryPi LogoI was using Pi-Hole on my local network for some time on a VirtualBox VM that I had set up but recently removed it from my network as it was acting up and causing another possible fail point on my network that I just didn’t feel like troubleshooting at the time.

However with the release of the new CloudFlare 1.1.1.1 DNS, I thought I would revisit my Pi-Hole setup, this time actually running it on one of the many RaspberryPi’s that I have sitting around collecting dust.

Block ads on OS X Leopard

I got on a fix today about ads on websites, I already use Adblock Plus as well as the Adblock Filterset.G Updater in Firefox.  But I wanted to take it a step further.  I adid so with the following steps.

Opened up terminal and added the following list to my /etc/hosts file.

After this you need to flush the DNS cache

sudo dscacheutil -flushcache

All set.  You can of course use this on Windows/Linux and other versions of OS X.  For older versions of OS X the dscacheutil command is not the same.
