Use Simple DNS Plus as DNS Proxy
Question asked by SDP SDP - April 4, 2015 at 7:33 PM
I started experimenting with SDP on my laptop to filter a huge (over 500K at the moment) list of ad, malware, and all sort of unwanted websites. I can't use the Windows HOSTS file for that as Windows basically chokes on a large HOSTS file.The Domain Blacklist plug-in comes very handy for this and works perfect, except for one major issue. As I work inside many different "private" networks that host their internal DNS server to resolve private IPs, I need a mechanism to tell SDP to poll the network DNS servers that I would have got from the network DHCP server and forward either all DNS requests to those servers or forward non-existent domain responses. Is something like this possible?
Thank you

Forwarding to the DNS servers from the Windows network configuration / received through DHCP is not currently an option in Simple DNS Plus.
But thank for the suggestion - this is a nice idea, and we will consider adding this in future versions.
