"A black hole for Internet advertisements."

Pi-hole is a Linux network-level advertisement and Internet tracker blocking application which acts as a DNS sinkhole.

It is designed for use on embedded devices with network capability, such as the Raspberry Pi [1].

I’ve been using Pihole for years in a setup similar to figure 1. Not so tidy looking though..
