#162 The TrabCast, Bart, Lovely Listener James, Jane, and Rose Entertain the Crowds

Listen to the Podcast Once (50 min)

Dumb Question Cornerette

From Listener Debbie T: ”I have a question…and maybe you could use it for the dumb question corner, but in trying to figure out the OpenDNS stuff, I went through the process of changing my router’s DNS to their numbers…and then I signed up for an account. They have software to download, is this something that I need? Or would changing the router be enough. I also added a network to my account, but I don’t know if that’s enough. I feel so lost, aaaack. Help Alison! I must be getting old because I can’t seem to focus on any of this!”

Short answer: “Yes, just entering the ‘numbers’ (AKA IP addresses) is enough to be safe”

Long Answer: watch these great videos from the Typical Mac User Podcast:

    Yay, Bart you did a great job! I was on vacation last week, and didn’t get a chance to listen to the podcast until this AM.

    Thank you for answering my panic question about DNS. I feel better knowing that I made the right choice. I don’t think I need any of the other software or settings, as we are an adults only house as well.
