Hi,

I am using the method mentioned here, through unbound. Is there a way i can let few static IP's skip the youtube safe settings in the unbound. I tried asking about segregating those ip's but then i have to use bind which i dont know about. If there is a way to skip the DMZ (i have lan, opt1, opt2 and dmz), that would help also, as i can put those static IP's on DMZ
I think it was mentioned somewhere to use port 5353 and use DNS forwader in conjunction with Unbound, but i cant find any tutorial for it. Also, i cant find any way to split the DNS i dont know if that would help. All I want is some computers can visit youtube and dont get blocked for videos. Even pfsense tutorials get blocked by it.
Any ideas as to where to look for or what to look for would help,
thanks for the great tutorial.

Beautiful guide!
I decided to move from ipcop to pfsense just to filter some https, I followed this guide (with the updates). Everything seems to work fine before some users start complaining mainly android apps not working (play store, snapchat, whatsapp..etc) I managed to locate the blocked (using firewall log) then create a bypass rule with the IP or Port for the whole network, however other clients start having similar issues as if those apps working on different IPs for certain devices (all android)
I read this topic 4 times, reinstall from zero three times without any improvement towards this issue which begins after applying the proxy with wpad.
I appreciate any advice even if an easier approach to filter some unwanted https sites.
Thank you.

On the android phone (wireless setting) try setting the proxy settings manually, instead of auto or none.

Finally, with manual proxy settings I have a stable communication with android devices.
