Pi-Hole Ad-Block Installer (ReadyNAS OS 6 ARM & x86)


After another round of updates of ad blocking services to my various browsers on different computers and mobile phones I decided to look for a more permanent solution. Pi-Hole offers just that. Instead of running a special piece of software on each and every device it act as a central point for ad blocking using DNS services.

So I set about to bring this to the ReadyNAS – and here it is:

Please note: Since Pi-Hole was developed for the Raspberry Pi it uses some paths for it’s web interface that aren’t compatible with the ReadyNAS Web UI. Thus those had to be tweaked and for that very reason the upgrade procedures using the command line or described on the web won’t work!
