This guide also assumes your delay is 0 so that the commands described herein have immediate effect. If your delay is not 0, you can set it to 0 first.
pluck delay 0
The following requires Pluckeye v0.99.59 or newer.
Second, configure your computer or home router to use that DNS provider. If you’ve never done this, see CleanBrowsing’s excellent guide on accomplishing this. It’s not that hard.
Third, you must allow the specific IP. In this example, we imagine
that we have configured our computer to use CleanBrowsing’s family
220.127.116.11. That is the IP address we use here.
pluck + allow 18.104.22.168
Note that if you configured the DNS on your router instead of your
computer, you’ll want to allow the IP address of your router
instead. An example router IP address is
pluck + allow 192.168.1.1
Stop here. Do not proceed until the IP rule has become effective or you will lose Internet.
You can verify the rule to allow the IP address has become effective by using the eval command with the IP address you specified above.
pluck eval 22.214.171.124
Once that is done, configure Pluckeye to block other DNS traffic. This can be accomplished using the following commands.
pluck + block port 53 pluck + block port 853 pluck + block port 5353 pluck + block port 8443 pluck + nodoh pluck + system
Congratulations, you now have DNS-based filtering set up and enforced by Pluckeye!
If you do nothing else, you’ll still have images and videos blocked by default. If you want to allow images, videos, and the rest by default, read on.
If you now feel it is safe for you to allow images, video, and a few other things by default, you may do so using the following gobbledygook.
pluck - block image/ pluck - block video/ pluck - block application/mp4 pluck - block application/octet-stream pluck - block application/vnd.rn-realmedia pluck - block application/vnd.rn-realmedia-vbr pluck - block application/x-bittorrent pluck - block application/x-iso9660-image pluck - block application/x-shockwave-flash pluck - block application/x-silverlight pluck - block audio/x-pn-realaudio pluck - block protocol wss
Alternatively, you can clear your Pluckeye configuration completely
using the clear command (
pluck clear), and then re-adding all of the rules that you added while following this guide.
There you have it.
If you find this setup works well for you, or falls short in practice, please do provide feedback.
