Configuring your router’s DHCP options to force clients to use Pi-hole as their DNS server is the quickest way to get all of your network devices to use Pi-hole. But what if you want a certain device to not use it?
Perhaps a family member is frustrated with white or blacklisting sites. Or maybe you want to log queries for all network devices except for a few.
The solution is to manually set the DNS server to on the device you don’t want to use Pi-hole with. Setting the DNS server on a device will override the settings handed out via the DHCP options.
