How to Run Pi-Hole on Your Mac ➝

I’ve had installing and testing Pi-hole on my to do list for a few months and finally had a chance to give it a try tonight. I used this guide from iMore to get it running on our Mac Mini home server using Docker. I won’t be able to use it on our whole network, though, unfortunately.

I work from home with users and don’t want to use any ad blocking on my work machine, which will cause pages to look different on my end compared to what the user sees. At the moment, I have it setup on each of our Apple TVs, but in practice that doesn’t appear to block as many ads as I was hoping for — I tested with YouTube and Crackle, both displayed ads as per usual.

So I guess I’ll have to think a bit more about what exactly I’ll be using Pi-hole for and where I can integrate it into my setup.
