Apply hosts file to 08R2 DNS Server to block ads for client?
Posted on 2011-02-21
There are a few good websites out there that provide updated HOSTS files that I have used on PCs to manage ads, and I find they work great... I was wondering though, could I use one of these files on my DNS Server, and thus block ads for any client PC using that dns server?
Is this common practice? What would be best practice for something like this? I was thinking of making a GPO to manage client HOSTS files, but managing the DNS server seems easier.. Need an experts opinion!
