does Red or Blue intercept Chromecast's hard coded DNS?
Does the red and/or blue intercept Chromecast's DNS that are hard coded for 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206? I have a thread at the Pi Hole Discourse. Perhaps someone can chime in here or there. My Arris cable modem has no options for command line/route/iptables.
I sent a Tweet but the account looks a bit dormant.
Firewalla (both red/blue) today intercept DNS, so it is possible to change 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168 or something else. The capability to make the change is in the beta branch now. If you don't change, if will use the router defaults.
1. in production, all DNS request will be intercepted and cached (for better performance), and then either relay to the router's DNS or family mode dns.
2. in beta, and alpha, we will start to make DNS configurable and per device redirection. So soon, you will have very powerful ways to customize all kinds of look ups
Yes; say you hard code 22.214.171.124 in Chromcast, or the operating system, then when the lookup comes, firewalla will intercept this lookup and send to whatever was configured on your system, or family mode dns server. (say 126.96.36.199)
Now this may pose to some people that intentionally want to set a different DNS address, so in the next alpha release, we will have a feature to selectively change DNS per device.
