Speed up lookups vs accessing dashboard


I’ve been experiencing some slow downs in web page loading. I believe the HTTPS solution posted here is the issue. It suggested putting the following rules in place to solve it. However, based on my limited knowledge I believe these rules would prevent me from remotely accessing the dashboard on my pihole. Am I missing something?

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --destination-port 443 -j REJECT --reject-with tcp-reset
iptables -A INPUT -p udp --destination-port 80 -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-port-unreachable
iptables -A INPUT -p udp --destination-port 443 -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-port-unreachable

ip6tables -A INPUT -p tcp --destination-port 443 -j REJECT --reject-with tcp-reset
ip6tables -A INPUT -p udp --destination-port 80 -j REJECT --reject-with icmp6-port-unreachable
ip6tables -A INPUT -p udp --destination-port 443 -j REJECT --reject-with icmp6-port-unreachable



You can still access the web interface over port 80 (via TCP).


I totally missed that it was udp. Thanks!
