I'm new to OpenDNS, but so far it seems to work great for my needs. I read around for information, but I'm still a bit confused about one thing.
I want to use OpenDNS with the same settings applied on two different locations, with different ISPs at the same time. On one of the places there is a desktop PC behind a router and when I'm there my laptop is also on that network. I have installed the IP auto updater app on both computers and it runs silently at the background as a scheduled task.
If the routers on both locations are set to use OpenDNS, is it necessary to set two networks on the OpenDNS settings, given that I want the same settings to be applied on both locations?
What I have tried is to bring my laptop on a friend's location and set his router for OpenDNS. In this situation the Auto IP Updater could update the IP automatically and although it took a bit more time then expected (about 10-15 min) for the OpenDNS settings to apply, it worked.
But what will happen if I have two computers on two locations with Auto IP Updater running on each? Do I have to setup 2 networks on the OpenDNS settings? If that is the case, maybe that means that I will have to change networks on the Auto IP Updater on my laptop when I travel from one of the locations to the other and that's not good.
