I just finished getting pi-hole all set up and at this point, I’m not sure if it’s working correctly or not. The admin console is populating with data, my DNS appears to be forwarding properly, and I can see the logs rolling with tons of requests; however, all the “test” sites and most other sites I visit still appear to be showing a bunch of ads. How do I concretely determine if pi-hole is indeed functioning correctly?
I’ve also tried running the installer repair just to make certain all is working correctly.
The second thing I noticed when tailing pihole.log is that there are a ton of requests to debug.opendns.com.
Sep 30 01:53:35 dnsmasq: 4188 10.0.1.56/62926 forwarded debug.opendns.com to 126.96.36.199
Sep 30 01:53:37 dnsmasq: 4189 10.0.1.12/52417 query[TXT] debug.opendns.com from 10.0.1.56
Thanks in advance for any help!
Ads blocked on test sites and other sites.
All test sites listed on the pi-hole site still show all their ads.
