Using Raspberry Pi as a router with content filtering, but without necessity to configure proxy on client side
Dear Raspberry community,
I am a happy owner of Raspberry Pi 3 and I have configured it as my tiny home server + router. It works well, but then I decided to install some content filtering to block myself from easily browsing through time-consuming newsfeeds and stuff during my day. I have found few answers, suggesting E2Guardian, GateSentry and SquidGuard. Unfortunately though, all of them require client-side proxy configuration, or at least this is what I understood from the walk-through guides.
My question is, can you recommend me any solution that would not require any client-side proxy setup, and instead simply block the requsts to declared sites?
Thank you and best regards!
If you just want to lock certain domains wholesale, simply blocking them in DNS is straightforward. You can create DNS entries pointing undesired domains to 127.0.0.1. There are full-blown projects such as PiHole that use this technique to block advertising sites, and you could easily

There are full-blown projects such as PiHole that use this technique to block advertising sites, and you could easily modify such an install.
The problem will be when you inevitably need/want to access a blocked site. The plus to configuring a client proxy is that it's relatively easy to turn off. If self-discipline is your problem, there are browser extensions that are supposed to help with staying focused. Instead, you might want to set up a "focused" work environment without a browser, fun-time apps and just what you need to get work done (e.g. a word processor or text editor). It's straightforward to set up a "serious" RPi image that boots straight into an editor, for example.
All that said, I find that people tend to start using "setting up the perfect distraction-free work environment" as yet another procrastin2017-09-11 19:13:20
