Once you've configured your DNS Filtering rules and applied them to a policy in Nebula, a plugin is installed across endpoints assigned with the policy.
The installed plugin monitors your network traffic and blocks access to restricted categories set in your DNS Filtering rule. If you want to test your endpoints to verify the module plugin is installed and working, use the following DNS Filtering category links in the table below.
|Command and Control & Botnet|
If a block page does not appear, verify your DNS Filtering configuration or check the status of the installed services.
Check service status
To verify the services are installed and running:
- Open Command Prompt as an administrator
- Run sc query mbdnsfilter
- Run sc query dnscrypt-proxy
Note: If the services are missing or domains are still not being filtered properly, see Troubleshoot DNS Filtering in Nebula.
