Can I suggest, that you have a look around the forums before posting. And possibly, check with your fellow family members before raising the same questions/discussions they already have.
It could purely be an assumption, but smiffers/sm1ff/cws82us all appear to be related someway.

You have only had one reply, so you can hardly tell us to stop telling you.

And you have never mentioned a DNS issue until now. Have you done any tracerts to the remote servers? Can you post the results?

You have more or less confirmed for me, that there are more than one person posting from your household, or you have multiple accounts here. Though I would not understand why either are needed.
If you could provide us with more information about your problems, and why you think its a DNS issue we can try and help.

Could it be OpenDNS that is causing the block,
what happens if you use Slingshot DNS?

How do you know you blocked from adult site. your underage for that stuff anyways you no need to look at that bad stuff. Plus most of the sites with p2p and file sharing sites have alot of mailware in them.

Have you asked Open DNS why they are blocking these sites? It doesn't look like it's anything to do with Slingshot.

And is there a reason why you're using Open DNS? There exist very few reasons to use it in NZ due to the latency.

First things first... You already posted this same question with another username. I suggested you to look at the other thread first.

Then you create a new username and posted the same question, from the same IP address.

Again you didn't post enough information so someone else suggested you look at the other thread.

That's when you asked people to stop directing you there. But if you don't give us enough information you will get the wrong answers.

Now you posted a screenshot and here is how it works:

OpenDNS offers a DNS server to block illegal site, P2P, adult material, gambling, etc. The network administrator sign up for the service, and select what to block. Then they configure the DNS in the router and the block is automatic.

This has nothing to do with Slingshot. Ask your network administrator about this. If this is blocked there might be a reason behind it.

I am locking this discussion now. Your other account has been banned. Do not create multiple accounts.

And please remember to post as much information as possible when asking for help. People here don't have crystal balls.
