    Warning...absolutely clueless when it comes to docker networking...

    For the docker network, can I use my existing scheme?

    For example, I use 192.168.250.0/24 for addressing.

    Ideally, I'd like to set the pi-hole instance to 192.168.250.2.

    Thank you in advance for entertaining a rookie question.  :-)

    @Hans, sorry, I meant to include that.... I am not using Family Protect, Ad block or DNS over HTTPS on FWG. I tried disabling DNS booster for this client and I got the same results with or without DNS booster enabled. This particular client is hard wired to a switch connected directly to the FWG. I also tried clearing the cache of the DNS Booster using the app. No change.

    In case anyone else gets here through my troubles, I ended up opening a ticket with support. Apparently there was a bug in the iOS Firewalla App that setup the DNS incorrectly on the FWG. v1.40 (46) is supposed to fix it. Support was able to remote in and tweak something to make it work for me in the meantime.

    The instructions worked perfectly for me once I straightened out a few errors I made.  I have all of the FWG features on and running, but I don't care if I can't see device level stats on the pi-hole.  I just wanted the additional ad/malware/tracker blocking.  

    This is was also my first docker experience so even a n00b like me can figure this out.

    Ok, I'm confused! :) 

    Pi-Hole setup and working perfectly, configured for Cleanbrowsing DNS servers. 

    1) If I turn on "Conditional Forwarding" in Settings > DNS, so I can see hostnames from the Firewalla, then the DNS query figures stop incrementing, but it shows hostnames.  If I turn it off, I lose hostnames but the stats increment! 

    2) I downloaded the Pi-Hole Remote App as above, and when using it, clicking on Statistics, it is telling me to check API and Privacy.  API QR scanned, and Privacy setting set to everything. 

    Might be whiskey .. but feeling a little confused!
