    How do I get my openDNS settings added to my Ipad? I have certain websites blocked on all my computers, I also want them blocked on Ipad. Anything I need to do specifically?

    Configure the OpenDNS addresses in the network settings of your iPad.

    If you have configured the OpenDNS addresses on the router, you don't need to do anything on the iPad.

    Btw, OpenDNS is for devices in *your* networks, not for your devices in other networks.

    So if my kid is smart enough to turn off Wi-Fi and use 3G there is no way to filter content through OpenDNS?

    As I said, OpenDNS is for *your* networks only. You don't have the right to (and you anyway cannot at the same time) register other networks' IP addresses with your OpenDNS network. Therefore you cannot use your OpenDNS settings. You may be able to use the pre-defined FamilyShield settings on the iPad, but even not if the other network doesn't allow the use of 3rd party DNS.

    "I have certain websites blocked on all my computers, I also want them blocked on Ipad."

    No problem. Jailbreak the iPad, and edit the hosts file to point these domains to nirwana...
    (Only a jailbroken iDevice is a good iDevice. :cool:)

    Edit: Oh, there may be another way to force the iPad to use your DNS settings at home:

    You have to work on your home network a lot.

    I have described a similar method two years ago:
