Pi-hole ignored by all devices in LAN


#8

on the internet. It’s running on a hosted VM.


#9

Can you try https://www.dnsleaktest.com/


#10


#11

Is that your pi-hole’s IP? It should be showing only the pi-hole’s IP there. :thumbsup:


#12

no I do not know what IP this is.


#13

Just a reminder - this topic has been covered many times before How do I access my Pi-hole remotely? - FAQs - Pi-hole Userspace

Try setting your router’s DNS to Google’s 8.8.8.8. Clear your dnscache, and try the dns leak test in a private/incognito window. It should show 8.8.8.8 then.


#14

yes, it now shows all the google DNS


#15

One more thing to double check is if you have selected in Pi-hole Advanced DNS settings -> Interface listening behavior -> Listen on all interfaces, permit all origins (make sure your Pi-hole is firewalled!)


#16

both IPs are from DNSwatch which is Pi-holes Upstream DNS Server


#17

it is currently set to only listen on interface eth0 but this is even the only available interface on the VM and it also did not help.


#18

Ping a blocked site like doubleclick.net?


#19

answer on ping is “couldn’t find host”

@@@@@ I can’t do any new post as I am limited to 10 a day!

no and I even cannot open bild.de due to adblock.


#20

Do you see ads on http://www.speedtest.net/


#21

I have had to re-register because as new user I have used all posts for today.

Back to topic: I do not see ads on speedtest.net. I can even not open bild.de as it claims I have to disable my adblocker (no browser adblock enabled)
And that is what confuses me. While it seems to be working on ads it is not working on domains I type into the browser.
I am not talking of domains I recently blacklisted. What I do is I open domains that are in the gravity.list. The should be blocked by Pi-hole. When I ping the domain or try nslookup it´s bouncing the correct results (ping, unknown host, nslookup, IP 0.0.0.0).
But again, when I open the domain in a browser (can be Win or iOS or MAC) the website works great.


#22

Can you go to doubleclick.net?


#23

no, this domain really seems to be blocked.
But I can go to goode.com which is in the mahakala and the preEventHorizon list (checked in adlist query).

When I ping goode.com it´s saying host not found.

Same for mkt561.com


#24

Try blocking www.goode.com as well.


#25

That seems to be working. On both Win and iOS device.

Also when I nslookup www.goode.com it delivers the IP 107.180.51.36 (if not blacklisted in Pi-hole)

When I nslookup goode.com (without the “www”) it bounces back 0.0.0.

So the issue is the www that gets added in the (every) browser. Is this a bug, something I can change in my network? On Pi-hole? I cannot add another www.domain.com to 250k domains :wink:

When I nslookup www.doubleclick.net it bounces back 0.0.0.0, as well as when I nslookip doubleclick.net

Not really in the spirit of things… The reason behind the 24 hour limit is to give you a chance to settle into the forums and get a feel for how we do things around here.

From the above:

As for support topics, it is more correct to edit your previous posts to include the requested information rather than posting many new replies in a row, bumping the topic over and over and spreading information that should be condensed together into a massive vertical sprawl that everyone has to piece through.

Please don’t try to circumvent the rules in place by creating a new account every time you reach the limit, as that will only lead to an IP ban… Consider this a warning.

@camisy Do you know that the Fritzbox got two DNS settings one for the WAN and one for the LAN ? It seems you have have setup pi-hole in the WAN DNS setting, which is the wrong place. You pi-hole upstream DNS should be your Fritzbox.
