Pi-hole only working on one device at a time


#1

Expected Behaviour:

Pi-hole functions the same on all computers on the network.

Actual Behaviour:

Pi-hole functions exactly as expected on one computer but does not work as a DNS for the second computer.

When I have the pi-hole set as the DNS for the second computer I keep getting a “DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_BAD_CONFIG” error but it continues to work flawlessly for the first computer.

Your debug log does not indicate any problems with Pi-Hole.

The problem is in the setup of the second client.

Thanks for looking it over,

It seems to depend on which client connects first. The first one gets a flawless connection, the second one does not, until i disconnect the first, then the second starts working perfectly.

I’m at a loss for what to try next,


#4

How do you have the clients configured - individually or through a router DNS configuration? How is the router DNS configured?


#5

I’m configuring the clients individually. The router seems to have its DNS locked.


#6

You might try using the Pi-Hole as DHCP server.


#7

Thanks, I’ll look into that.
