Hi, I have a client (School) where we have DNS running though OpenDNS to provide content filtering. Works great for that. We have all of the social media and more blocked. The problem is that I have a few users (teachers, administrators) where they need access to social media and other blocked sites. This is on a domain so DNS requests go first to the domain controller and are forwarded to the gateway.
In the past on windows 7 boxes, I was able to set the local computer on a fixed ip address and change the DNS to point to one of the outside servers like 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168. I would set the hosts file to point to the server and the lmhosts file to identify the domain. (at least I think that's how it worked.)
On windows 10 pro, this doesn't seem to work. I have configured it the same way but in this configuration, it's not seeing the domain controller so it won't authenticate the username / password so access to server resources is not available. Is there a better configuration scheme that I can use to accomplish seeing the domain controller for authentication and resources as well as setting access to bypass the openDNS in the router?
Thanks in advance for the assist with this.
