Pi-Hole - Network wide Ad blocking

  • so it seems to hang on checking iproute2 not sure where to go from here..

    i installed it on ubuntu just to play around and I like it... just would really like to get it running on here.


    I think I read something somewhere about iproute 2 but of course can't find that now. lol

  • So I had to apt-get iproute2 and it broke omv. Removed a bunch of stuff I'm guessing I needed. Its a test box so its not a big deal but is there a fix for this? I'd really like to find a way to get this working.

  • any news about an OMV plugin?

    This wouldn't be an easy plugin. The pi-hole script is over 1000 lines and it calls other install scripts. It installs another web server (port conflicts) and looks like it tries to configure configs that OMV controls as well. I might look at what the script is doing. Seems easier to just setup an RPi to do this though.

    omv 5.5.2 usul | 64 bit | 5.4 proxmox kernel | omvextrasorg 5.3.3
    omv-extras.org plugins source code and issue tracker - github


    Please read this before posting a question.
    Please don't PM for support... Too many PMs!

  • So I'm running OMV 3.0 on top of a Debian 8.7 installation. Can I simply ssh into Debian and install pi-hole? Will the pi-hole webserver conflict with the OMV webserver? The system has dual LAN, so maybe I could run pi-hole on the other interface? Although I'd rather not if I didn't have to...

  • Pi-Hole is based on dnsmasq, so if you have any dns stuff set up on your OMV machine, it will screw that up. It also has its own web server.


    It's probably safer to run it in a VM or a docker container.

    i personally agree to this approach.
    Currently i'm using Pi-Hole based on DietPi VM (http://dietpi.com). Actually DietPi does offer plenty of useful setups.
    I myself have now two VM in operation 1. PiHole 2. NextCloud (with SMB access to my OMV shares)
    Setup was not to complicated and it simply works out of the box without screwing my OMV setup :-)

    So you have a VM on your OMV machine running DietPi and pi-hole? Does the pi-hole have the same IP address as OMV? Is OMV running in VM as well or on bare metal? I have debian running with OMV as a service, what's the best way to get a VM of dietpi going? The machine is running headless.


    If all this will be a giant headache, I'll probably consider getting some Pi hardware to run this on.
