Blocked Query Response

Customize how Control D responds to blocked queries.

What is this?

When Control D blocks a domain via a Filter, Service, or Custom Rule, by default it returns the following DNS records:

  • A: 0.0.0.0
  • AAAA: ::

This feature allows you to change this behavior and return a different response.

How to Use it

Edit your desired Profile and go to Profile Options.

Toggle this feature ON and choose the desired response type. There are several to choose from:

  • 0.0.0.0 / :: (Default)
  • NXDOMAIN - return this RCODE
  • REFUSED - return this RCODE
  • Custom - choose your own IPs to respond with
