I like OpenDNS to help keep my kids safe on the Internet. But sometimes I need access to things I don't let them have access to. For example, I was working a fix in my garage and needed a DIY video from YouTube. I was blocked when I clicked on it. OpenDNS worked as I had set it up but it would nice to have an On/off switch on the Dashboard where I could enable/disable the service. My .02.
Thank you for considering.
OpenDNS, as you use it, is for your network as a whole, so you cannot control singles device via the dashboard. You don't send the information of the source device to OpenDNS, so this feature is not feasible from a technical perspective.
What you can do is to install something like http://www.eusing.com/ipswitch/free_ip_switcher.htm to switch your DNS configuration of a single computer between OpenDNS and another publicly accessible DNS service. This is your on/off switch then, exactly as you want.
