    I setted OpenDNS FamilyShield, but it blocks some sites i need.

    I put these sites in “Allowed URLs” but this trick doesn’t work.

    What can i do?

    @casino Make sure that you don’t have OpenDNS at the system level: go to the Internet Settings page and check that “Use custom DNS servers” is either unchecked or the DNS server used is a non-filtering DNS.

    And, close your browser window, wait for a few seconds, then reopen it.

    Thanks. But i need to know more about this.

    Can you explain me well the function of “Custom DNS” what really it is? I can’t put Anti-Porn DSN into this setting?

    “Custom DNS” allows you to override the system level DNS service provided by your ISP with something else, such as Google Public DNS, or Quad 9. If you have parental control disabled at the router level, this is the DNS service the router will use.

    If you have parental control enabled, then the DNS service specified in the Profile will take precedence, i.e., the system level DNS will not be used. But there’s one exception: when a site is white listed, the system level DNS is used to resolve the domain name (instead of the profile DNS). Now, if the system level DNS is the same as the domain level, then whitelisting does not work.

    It doesn’t work anymore. I don’t know why.

    The site i need is: iptorrents.com

    My settings are: Access Control enabled with CleanBrowsing DNS. Then i’ve added this site in the white list.

    In the internet setting there’s 8.8.8.8 at system level.

    Always the same procedure but this time it doesn’t work.

    I’ve rebooted pcwrt and my Tp-Link Modem/Router also. Cache and cookies cleaned, dns cleaned with “ipconfig /flushdns”, i’ve reboot the pc too. Nothing, this method doesn’t work anymore.

    I’ve read that CleanBrowsing has done many changes at their DNS, can this be the reason?

    What’s the response when you do nslookup? I.e., open a command window and execute “nslookup iptorrents.com”.

    The problem has been solved. I have done the reset of the modem/router (Tp-link), it has been the unique solution. There was something wrong in its settings maybe, i don’t know.

    Now it’s all right. Thanks.
