I'm moving from Rpi to docker and need a bit of help


I’ve been running Pi-Hole on a RPi for some time and have just bought a Synology NAS and have installed Pi-Hole in Docker.

It installed fine but continually restarts itself and I haven’t managed to access the admin page so far as the run time is so short.

I access the admin page from any device at

Ads are being blocked fine on the Mac Mini, that has docker and Pi-hole running, but not on any other device.

I have my DNS in my router set to and have also set it to that on my Macbook and iMac. Still no blocking.

Below is a screenshot of the docker containers and settings:

I’m sure this is just a simple setting change requirement but my network knowledge is still a persistent challenge.

Any help to point me in the right direction will be much appreciated.
