One year ago, I started using AdGuard Home instead of Pi-Hole to filter DNS requests and block ads and tracking. Yesterday, I switched to NextDNS instead. NextDNS has mostly the same features, but is hosted in the “cloud” and I have one less self-hosted service to care about. AdGuard Home is awesome, but NextDNS seems to be working great as well and also integrates with Tailscale easily.

A few days ago I changed my home network so that the FRITZ!Box now directly establishes a DSL connection and I can use IPv6 again. Too bad that I only now noticed that this has led to the fact that it used the DNSv6 server of the ISP. Now I adjusted everything so that AdGuard Home is also used for DNSv6. Less advertising and tracking again…

Recently I wrote about finding new uses for my Raspberry Pi 4. Besides Tailscale I also installed Pi-Hole to filter advertising DNS requests.
