In this segment, we are going to she yo how to set up a “Simple DNS AD-Blocker for Raspberry Pi all models – 2020″
DNS Ad-Blocker is a lightweight dnsmasq DNS server to block traffic to known ad servers with optional DNSCrypt support. Supports x86_64 and Raspberry Pi (armhf).
The DNS server works by returning
NXDOMAIN when a DNS lookup is made by a browser or device to a blacklisted domain. This tells the browser the DNS record for a domain name could not be found which means the browser won’t even attempt a connection.
If you have found a host you think should be blacklisted please submit an issue on the upstream blacklist, StevenBlack/hosts, as the aim of this project is not to maintain yet another blacklist.

Software Required :

|SD Card||Raspberry Pi Keyboard|
- To start the practical we need to use the below-given parameters, either we can SSH Raspberry Pi and use the below-given command as shown in the video or we can go ahead and configure container using Portainer.
docker run --restart=always \ -p 53:53/tcp -p 53:53/udp \ -e DEBUG=0 \ -e NS1=126.96.36.199 -e NS2=188.8.131.52 \ -e AUTO_UPDATE=1 \ -e BRANCH=master \ -e DNSCRYPT=0 \ -v </path/to/config>:/config \ oznu/dns-ad-blocker:armhf
- To resolve the Port 53 bind issue, you need to use the below-given commands.
sudo systemctl disable systemd-resolved.service sudo systemctl stop systemd-resolved
- Once the setup finishes we can go ahead and update our router DNS setting to our OpenMediaVault Address.
- DNSCrypt is a protocol that authenticates communications between a DNS client and a DNS resolver. It uses cryptographic signatures to verify that responses originate from the chosen DNS resolver and haven’t been tampered with.
Updating DNS AD-Blocker IP Address to Router DNS
- Now, we need to log in to our Router and then Navigate to DNS Settings.
- Followed by, entering the OpenMediaVault IP Address to our Router Primary DNS Address.
- After that, the traffic can route through the Raspberry Pi and Block ads with Pi-Hole.
Primary DNS Address : "OpenMediaVault IP Address" Secondary DNS Address : "Cloudflare DNS Address i.e 184.108.40.206"
- You are all set to use Raspberry Pi as DNS Ad-Block Server.
- If you face any issue regarding this article please share your thoughts.
- Enjoy the AD free web browsing experience with your Raspberry Pi and Openmediavault.
