another toy: pi hole on orange pi zero

bought a tiny SBC: orange pi zero a couple of years ago, @ about $10 including shipping at that time, but now is $15.73

didn't use it more than one year, this week installed debian from armbian.com, then put pi-hole on it, very easy, just one command.

curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | bash


pi-hole also comes with dnsmasq, so you can use it for DNS caching. From web-gui, you can find which website/server your devices visit, and easily block them.

I think you used "PI hole" and not "PI home"...

Nice tool to get rid of annoying advertising...
Since throughput for Pi hole is not very high, it might be possible to install it on my dockstar ...

Uhh,
Dockstar only has 128 MByte RAM, pi-hole requries more ....

Pi-hole is very lightweight, and does not require much processing power

~52MB of free space
512MB RAM

Haha, sorry about my typo. actually I also consider to use my dockstar as pi-hole, but the hardware too weak.

I had docstar, pogoplug, goflex home, but raspberry/orange pi can do much more, and more fun.
