I used Teamviewer to put OpenDNS on a friend's computer. I ran ipconfig/flushdns and cleared his cookies and history. In another thread there is discussion of running an updater, but no information is given on what that is.
Here is the quote: "The problem was that your IP address 188.8.131.52 was not registered with any OpenDNS network, especially not with yours ("id 0"), therefore your settings could not take effect. You had to update your network with your IP address information, e.g. by running an Updater."
What is an updater, how is my IP address registered with your network, or my network? I'm using the IP but it's not registered with my network? Bwuh? None of this is explained.
BTW, if someone would be nice enough to point at how to set the Admin privileges in Windows 7 so that the user can't change the DNS settings, that would be great.
Also, if opendns is put on the end user computer, does this work on all networks? I sure hope so, but this discussion of the network being registered with something is making me wonder.
I'm very able to understand technical things, but I've never done this before.
