Network-wide ad blocker..
« on: June 06, 2018, 04:34:53 pm »
Anyone using/ used or have experience in an API called PI-Hole for linux?
a Network-wide ad blocker via your own Linux hardware?

Website:

https://pi-hole.net/

Github development:

I'm sure a few may be intrigued.. ;)

Peppermint has a built in adblocker...  Menu > All > Advert blocker... which adds a nice list of things we never need to see to your system's hosts file. I supplement it with the hosts file found on:
