If you want to utilize Blockade for a single Mac device, you will need to modify the DNS settings for just this device, which is typically done through Network window.

While there may be differences in how to configure DNS settings on each version of Mac OS, this example should point you in the right direction.  If you are still having troubles, please review the documentation for your specific version of Mac OS.

You will likely also need root privileges to make changes to these settings.

Mac OS 10.5:

  1. Click Apple > System Preferences > Network.
  2. If the lock icon in the lower left-hand corner of the window is locked, click the icon to make changes, and enter your password when prompted.
  3. Select the connection that you want to configure:
  4. Select the DNS tab
  5. If there are any DNS server IP addresses currently listed, please write them down in case you ever need to revert to your old settings.
  6. Remove the currently configured ip address(es).
  7. Click the + to add the IP address of the machine that has Blockade installed on it.  This IP address should be a static IP address so that it does not change with DHCP.
  8. Click Apply > OK to save the change.
  9. Test that your setup is working by visiting a new website within your web browser.
  10. Repeat this procedure for any additional network connections that you want to change.
