Adblock support thread

Disregard, seems some queries bled out to an external dns


I am using adblock with a proxy in my network on client. Everything works fine but the DNS report from adblock shows localhost instead of the host IP address when an host use the proxy.

In tinyproxy, I enable and disable X-Tinyproxy header settings but the result is the same for both cases. The effect of this option is the following:

Via: 1.1 tinyproxy (tinyproxy/1.10.0)
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
User-Agent: Netscape/5.0
If-Modified-Since: Fri, 25 Mar 2022 13:01:34 GMT
Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: 1
Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5
If-None-Match: "abc-gzip"
Cache-Control: max-age=0
Cookie: XSRF-TOKEN=123
Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,*/*;q=0.8
X-Tinyproxy: client_private_ip_address  <-------

An header is added in the header with the client IP address.

I think the DNS report give me localhost because the proxy server is running on the same host than adblock.

How in case of a proxy adblock can use the host IP address instead of localhost in the DNS report ?


Guys I need your help with something. I have openwrt on mi3g, with adblock installed, but sometimes, when I turn on the router, after it connects to the internet, adblock does not start the lists, forcing me to manually reload it for the lists to load and this is annoying as hell .

Is there any way I can create a rule for it whenever the internet activates it automatically reloading the lists?

Hello, just installed this today on my WRT3200ACM and wanted to say thanks to Dirk and anyone else who helps with this project. It is a lot of fun and the price can't be beat :wink: I've also had a lot of fun with Pi-hole but moved to the WRT3200ACM with OpenWrt to clean up my desk. One of the things that gave me confidence to install this was Dirk's nonstop support for many years on this forum. I was afraid it might bork my DOH config but the install was flawless and I'm up and running with OISD basic list. Thank you!!

Hi. Need advice why blocking works on android, Linux livecd but not on Linux laptop installation.
I don't use any VPN.

Reasons would include:

  • the client having configured a different DNS server, instead of taking the offer from the dhcp lease (plain dns traffic can be hijacked though, and adblock offers that option)
  • your browser defaulting to DoH, as they increasingly do (only option would be to disable it in the browser, technically using should work as well - if the browser(s) obey it)
  • Your distribution installing a local validating resolver (kill it with fire)

There was nothing in dhcpcd.conf.
But I forgot I added goggle dns to resolv.conf.head during installation.
