Since Geine application is not available for Linux PC, I directly visited https://netgear.opendns.com/ and created an account. Set Filtering Level to High and Blacklisted/White-listed few websites.
Observation: Was able to visit www.internetbadguys.com , social networking sites, video sharing sites, blacklisted and white-listed websites etc. Screen shot of router home page attached, displaying that the "Parental Controls Status: Not Enabled"
Output of diagnostic command:
nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com
** server can't find debug.opendns.com: NXDOMAIN
nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com
which.opendns.com text = "I am not an OpenDNS resolver."
Authoritative answers can be found from:
1. Shouldn't the filtering work for a device that is accessing internet via the LPC enabled Netgear router even without installing Genie application?
2. Or Is Genie application required to be installed in each device even if bypass account is not needed?
3. I am told that LPC and OpenDNS shouldn't be used in conjunction. But if router DNS are set to OpenDNS IP address, the filtering works! Please comment.
