Blocking proxy servers on Asus AC1900 With OpenDns
I have been trying to figure this out for a while, is there any way to block proxy server connections through the router? I have parental controls using OpenDns and have set up everything accordingly to block url web proxies using the proxy category. The only issue is that it can be bypassed by connecting to proxy servers IP's on individual devices. I don't mean using url proxies like proxfree.com, but rather connecting directly through IP such as 184.108.40.206 with port 3128. This bypasses everything, and hence I ask the main question. I have even asked on my routers forum with no response.
"Blocking proxy servers on Asus AC1900 With OpenDns"
This is a contradiction. You can either block something with your router or with OpenDNS. You did already everything "to block url web proxies using the proxy category", and not only this, you also blocked domains where proxy software can be downloaded from, and blocked domains where proxy software may connect to. This is all OpenDNS as DNS service can do for you. Everything else is outside of scope of OpenDNS and of DNS.
So now, is it right that you expect us other users to do the following for you?
- Search the internet for the user manual of your specific router model.
- Study this user manual to find out if outbound firewall rules can be configured to block certain IP addresses/ranges, ports and/or protocols.
- Describe in detail what to do.
Or would you prefer to research this yourself maybe? At least as far as you can proceed?
