Pi-hole

Network-wide ad blocking via your own Linux hardware
FTLDNS

FTLDNS (pihole-FTL) provides an interactive API and also generates statistics for Pi-hole®'s Web interface.

  • Fast: stats are read directly from memory by coupling our codebase closely with dnsmasq
  • Versatile: upstream changes to dnsmasq can quickly be merged in without much conflict
  • Lightweight: runs smoothly with minimal hardware and software requirements such as Raspberry Pi Zero
  • Interactive: our API can be used to interface with your projects
  • Insightful: stats normally reserved inside of dnsmasq are made available so you can see what's really happening on your network

Official documentation

The official FTLDNS documentation can be found here.

Installation

FTLDNS (pihole-FTL) is installed by default when you choose to enable the Web interface when installing Pi-hole.

IMPORTANT!

FTLDNS will disable any existing installations of dnsmasq. This is because FTLDNS is dnsmasq + Pi-hole's code, so both cannot run simultaneously.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
