Dns Safety Admin Guide

Dns Safety filter is a DNS forwarding server (like dnsmasq, unbound, pi-hole) with extensive filtering capabilities. It allows administrator to filter access to domain names by categories, easily block access to user specified domains and provides different access policies for different groups of machines in your network.

Dns Safety is supposed to be deployed as primary DNS server in your local network and can forward DNS requests to your ISP's DNS server, Google Public DNS, OpenDNS and other third party DNS providers. Internal DNS requests can be forwarded to internal DNS servers (for example Active Directory domain controllers).

The filter can be easily managed from full featured Web UI deployed on Debian 10, Ubuntu 18 and Raspberry PI (Raspbian 10). Other operating systems might be supported too in the near future.
