    Hi,

     

    Most operating systems do allow you to change the network settings on the local computer such that they bypass the DNS settings configured on the router. With that said, there are two ways in which you can prevent users on your network from bypassing us:

    1) Configure your users to use only Guest/Limited accounts on their computers. This way, they will not have administrative access to change the network settings on their machines.

    2) You can obtain a router with the ability to force all DNS traffic over port 53 on the router, thus requiring everyone on the network to use the DNS settings defined on the router (in this case, OpenDNS). Unfortunately, this is not something we resources to assist with determining or configuring. You may want to check your router documentation or contact the manufacturer to see if this is possible with your device.

    If you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know!

    Best regards,
