OpenDNS Question


Not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but if not, feel free to relocate it

If I set up my local BIND cache server to use OpenDNS Servers as its forwarders, what do I get if I don't register with OpenDNS? Do the servers automatically blacklist anyway, or only if you register, and set up your own blacklist? I've read OpenDNS's web pages and I'm still not certain....

No, it's fine, you don't *need* to register. And given your home IP can potentially change at any time, I really don't know how registering could ever be required. I guess it's probably a way to provide you with a dashboard for the requests made from the IP address you browse the site from.
