OpenDNS circumvention

Hi All,

    I was wondering if clients browsing the web with OpenDNS can get to website they should not be allowed to get to if they knew the IP address of the site. Can DNS prevent this and how is this achieved?

Re: OpenDNS circumvention

Well...this is mostly for OpenDNS as a question but even if they type in an IP address, any link on the page will be with the name...so it will go back to blocking.  Also, most elements on the page are source links with DNS names as well.  

 

This is discussed widely on OpenDNS forums.
