    How to setup OpenDNS on one pc?


    I have wifi network in my room and i have to share it with my friend. But he uses it for torrent etc.

    So how can i setup OpenDNS only on his pc(not on wifi router) and set up filter after that?

    Not possible, unless you plan to use other DNS than OpenDNS, since you both have the same network IP. And even worse, if you have a shared IP, anyone on the network, who uses OpenDNS will be limited by your filter as well. I managed to block people on my network like that, lets just say, that it is illegal. If you want to restrict him access to porno and stuff like that, you can use a specialized DNS like Familyshield or NortonDNS .

    I would change router to hand out opendns so he gets it and anybody else who visits you. On your own pc, just set dns manually to something like 8.8.8.8 and you won't be blocked. If you can, block port 53 outbound to any thing other than opendns, with an exception from your machine to 8.8.8.8.
