11.1. How to make local resource easily available. Use aliases

To get access to your LAN resources you should specify the IP (in the local network) of the web server which you want to access from your network and register the IP address and its domain name in Aliases (go to the Domains tab and scroll all the way down).

11.2. How to temporarily suspend filtering

To pause the filtering enter Dashboard, go to Settings -> Web Filtering (left menu), and click Suspend.

To suspend filtering via SafeDNS Agent click on the Slider button at the bottom of the Agent's Home page. Your password is required if the settings are protected by password.

Also, you can stop filtering the internet or change the active profile in the Agent's tray icon. Just right-click on it and choose the necessary option.

You can also switch the filtering off for 10 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour or until switching off/ reboot.

Furthermore, you can change the active filtering profile from the tray icon.

If your settings are password protected, you will be asked for your password.

11.3. Does SafeDNS work with proxy servers?

Yes, SafeDNS does work with proxy servers. You should configure a proxy server to use SafeDNS DNS addresses. Set these DNS addresses in the settings of your proxy server. If the proxy server uses the settings of the operating system, you should set our DNS in your system. After this, you should fix your external IP address in Dashboard.

If you use Squid, input our DNS servers in the system settings of a set parameter dns_nameservers in the Squid configuration.

If you use a Windows-based proxy server, you can install SafeDNS Agent and a proxy server on the same host. In such configuration, configure a proxy server to use DNS 127.0.0.1.

11.4. How to change time zone for schedule and statistics

You can change a time zone in Dashboard by going to Account -> Person and selecting an appropriate time zone in the Additional section. Never forget to save your change, click Save.

11.5. How to see reason for blocking a website on block page

Go to Show details on the Block page. If you have concealed the block page (Hidden block page with the emulation of the website error or Empty DNS answer, as if the blocked website did not exist) the reason for blocking will not be shown.

11.6. How to check website category

You can check a category of any website with our service by using the link: https://www.safedns.com/check/ or by clicking the Check site link at the foot of a webpage of the SafeDNS site.

If you think a site is categorized incorrectly, you can make a review request, and advise on the category to which, in your opinion, this site belongs. After that, click the Save button.

Also, you can use a SafeDNS bookmarklet (a bookmarklet is a small JavaScript program, designed as JavaScript: URL and saved as a browser bookmark). While on any site, click this link in the bookmarks bar and request site re-categorization.
