I am using an Edimax router on my home network and have set the default DNS addresses to those of OpenDNS's Family Shield. But now I realise the protection is safe only if I force the use of OpenDNS from the router and block any request to an exterior DNS service.
So what I need to do is - see this discussion on their forums and here - to create a new filtering rule on my Edimax router to disable outbound UDP 53 traffic for my LAN. I can do this as shown page 50 of my router's manual.
The problem is that I lose all internet connectivity after creating these rules. I can't figure out how to allow the traffic to go through OpenDNS's addresses in my router.
Here is what I did :
1/ Make OpenDNS the default DNS provider :
2/Disable outbound UDP 53 traffic for my LAN :
3/ This is my problem : how can I add a second rule that allows port 53 tcp,udp to OpenDNS's servers ? The "Outbound IP filtering" only allows to set blocking filters.
Any suggestions ?
- The problem here is from the router because I'd like an OS-independent solution.
