Pi-Hole is a popular DNS forwarder, often used primarily for blocking domains specifically associated with ads and tracking.
For detailed setup instructions of Pi-Hole itself, please see the Official Pi-Hole Documentation.
|Once you have installed Pi-Hole and can access the administration panel, Quad9 is already one of the default options.
|Once Quad9 has been configured in Pi-Hole, you can configure your router or a single computer to use the Pi-Hole's IP address as a DNS server. If the Query Log is enabled (Settings -> Privacy [tab]), you should see Quad9 recorded in the Status column:|
You can also confirm if Quad9 is being used manually on Linux, MacOS, or Windows.
|Domains which are blocked by Quad9 will record Blocked (external, NXRA) in the Status column of the Query Log:|
