    i have a proxicast cellular router that is OpenDNS ready (see screen shot i linked) and there is one option that is a little confusing.

    http://i.imgur.com/UKzoV.jpg

    it has an option to enable openDNS, the user name, password, and network label for the account (i like this, very helpful since i use openDNS).

    i am confused about the option that is disabled by default (i have it outlined in red).

    can someone explain what this does if i have the openDNS service enabled but have this option disabled?

    does this option force the look ups to route through openDNS regardless of what the user put in their PC?

    for example, if a user has 8.8.8.8 as their DNS server, by having this option enabled, will it ignore their local DNS server entry and go straight to OpenDNS?

    thanks.

    "does this option force the looks to route through openDNS regardless of what the user put in their PC?"

    It seems it is this, yes. You may want to test it then.

    ok, it looks like that option does exactly that.

    it will override any DNS servers entered in by the user to attempt to bypass openDNS servers.

    thanks.
