I should not be able to visit a website for a domain that is in an adlist.
I am new to Pihole. Just installed it on a RPi 3 last night. I'm using the admin web interface and on my Win10 PC I have set it to use the Pihole as primary DNS server with 22.214.171.124 as secondary. I have also ran ipconfig /flushdns.
It appears to be blocking standard Windows telemetry connections from what I can tell. But when I was visiting random websites I was still seeing ads. I found the following Blocklists:
As a test I added the tiktok.txt blocklist to Pihole. I am new to Pihole but from what I understand you add the list, then you goto Tools > Update Gravity and Update that. I guess this processes/compiles the adlists?. This process appeared to work fine without issue.
So now Pihole shows that there more domains in the adlist. When I look on the Tiktok adlist I can find for example tiktok.com. So since that has been added to Pihole doesn't that mean that I should not be able to access it? Should it resolve to 0.0.0.0 ? Because I can still visit tiktok.com in my web browser just fine. Although I cannot ping it on the command line. So that is odd...
What am I doing wrong here? I am new to Pihole so I feel like there is just some fundamental thing about it I am misunderstanding.
I can visit the websites fine and they don't appear to be blocked even though they are on my adlist.
