[Freedombox-discuss] Freedombox as router - LAN-wide privacy

Hello again.

I'm actually currently testing solution using the iptables, mentioned
It required changing one line in privoxy's config
(accept-intercepted-requests = 1) and one iptables call.
This seems to be working as expected, except the mentioned limitation of
not being able to intercept HTTPS traffic. I'm wondering whether
hosts/DNS approach to domain blocking would be limited in this way (my
limited understanding is that DNS requests are unencrypted and visible
to the router anyway).


PS: for the reference, I've used this script
<http://andrwe.org/scripting/bash/privoxy-blocklist> to import adblock
filters into privoxy, it also seems to be working OK.
