    Well, you'd have to look at the browser history of his ipod, unless you have a router that keeps URL logs.

    Don't forget though that a domain lookup does not equal visiting a site.

    "Is there any way to see what my son is looking up on his iPod?"

    Yep, no problem. Show him over the shoulder. Or ask him.

    "I see some blocked domains that I am pretty sure is coming from him"

    Fine, so you know what he (or whoever) looked at - OpenDNS block pages. ;-)

    DNS settings are easily removed from any iDevice which makes OpenDNS redundant. How to do it is readily available on the net. I've tested it on my iPad and it as TOO easy! It's such a loosing battle.

    If you give up or never take control of administration out of the box, it doesn't matter what the device is.

    Also, I suspect you mean something other than 'redundant', which would indicate that OpenDNS (filtering) is duplicating some other filtering setup, while you do clearly intend to indicate from other context that it is a futile effort.

    What about setting up a time block just for his ipod? Is that possible?

    Search the app store for a related app?

    Linksys Smart WiFi Router works great for blocking ANY device on the LAN. Unfortunately it only uses 1 hour increments. But it is handy. You can set hour blocks of time that are allowed or not allowed. You can access it from anywhere in the world too!
