Marcs Updater

Update: A new beta version of the 1.5 series has again finally been released. The new DNS service providers all-inkl.com and inwx.com are supported and some code refactoring to support custom DNS and IP service providers has been performed. My plan is to have custom provider support and multiple account support for a 2.0 release this year.

There have been some reports about issues with the Updater not updating anymore. Please try the latest beta version and switch to another IP Check provider instead of the previous default dnsomatic.com. For some reason they are rate-limiting the number of requests to their service. The new IP Check provider selection allows you to choose another provider in such cases. You can test the functionality with the new "Test" panel.

I'm going to use this application with openDNS service to block urls. Actually I don't understand how WiFi filtering is working (maybe because English are not my language). Filtering a ssid means that only when connected to it, the service will run? Or the excluded ssids won't be updated?

Is there a way to recognize the wired LAN which is connected, in order to be managed like ssids?

Hello Stefanos,

yes, filtering the SSIDs means that only if you are connected to a listed network, your IP is send to OpenDNS. Same rule applies to the network filtering tab where you can filter networks by gateway / DHCP IP. The later one can be used to recognize the wired LANs.

Best regards,
