Introduction to Configuring OpenDNS
Configuring OpenDNS means that OpenDNS is being specified as the DNS server for a network, usually in place of the DNS servers provided by an ISP. As the DNS server for a network, OpenDNS receives and answers the Internet DNS requests that originate from the computers and devices connected to that network.
It is important to understand that OpenDNS's advanced-feature settings are applied to a network and those settings are subsequently inherited by all of the computers and devices that connect to that network.
The topics in this section reference the most common ways to configure OpenDNS on a home, small to medium business, or Enterprise network.
