I am using the dynamic dns updater.
I am running into an odd issue, or maybe its just my ignorance on how the opendns service works.
Assumption I have:
the opendns updater really is used to update IP addresses for stats and filter that is greater than the non-standard.
I noticed today when testing kids laptops that from their devices they were able to view pornhub.com. When i did a nslookup it was returning the ip using 184.108.40.206 as the name server.
Looking around opendns I saw the ip in networks with an old ip displayed and a little green refresh icon. When i pressed that it changed the old ip to the current ip and in doing so now pornhub.com is blocked from the kids machines again.
even if the IP is not set, meaning I get no stats, should I expect that sites like pornhub.com will be blocked?
Is there something else I need to do with the updater or opendns settings to make sure I don't have to go in and click that refresh button? I thought the point of the updater was to update the ip address.
