Until recently I was using my own solution to block Trackers, Ads and other unwanted network traffic. My solution works pretty well for years. Now I have replaced it by Pi-hole which is an open-source software which can run nicely on a cheap Raspberry Pi.
Pi-hole is easy to install, easy to use and offers a great user interface that gives you a great overview of what’s going on on your network and easy black- and whitelist maintenance.
Pi-hole also offers an API which will be integrated in NetworkToolbox soon.
I have created a small tutorial on how to install Pi-Hole on a Raspberry Pi.
