If you have a #Synology, here's how you can host Pi-Hole on there instead.
@kev Do you use it as a transparent proxy as well?
@lasombra not at the moment. I purely use it for DNS.
@kev I currently run mine in a docker container but, previously ran it in a VM with DietPi as the OS. Never tried it on an actual raspberry pi.
I run it on Raspberry Pi 3B+ and it works totally OK. What particular problems did you have so you're talking about crappy experience?
@VikingKong tried it maybe 2 years ago on a Pi 3B+ also. Web ui felt slow and clunky, and the Pi kept going down. I’d get maybe a few days before it would crash, overheat maybe, I dunno.
About 6 months so I tried again and the image didn’t even work. I gave up at that point.
@VikingKong could be a bad unit though, again, I don’t know. Didn’t have time to invest in working it out😕
Yes, looks like a bad unit. Besides Pi-Hole I run on the same unit Nextcloud, FreshRSS, Kodi and Unbound for DNS over TLS which Pi-Hole uses as an upstream server, everything works fine.
@VikingKong wow! Didn’t think they could run all that. Just my luck to get a dud unit!
Oh, and I've forgotten, there's Transmission Daemon also 😊
Actually, Nextcloud's WebUI works rather slowly, but I think, it's not too fast by itself, because FreshRSS, Pi-Hole and Transmission Daemon's WebUIs which are run on the same unit are pretty damn fast.
@kev Ive been considering virtualizing my pihole, but not because of performance issues. Mostly for the fun of trying to do a k8s cluster approach. Ive been running pihole directly on a Pi Zero W for over a year now with great performance though.
I dunno, I set it up on a pi 1 B the other day, and it works like a charm.
