I’m trying to limit my teenage son’s access to certain websites (like Discord) during school hours only. The only solution I’ve found is to use something like https://www.dnsfilter.com. They require our public IP.
But while playing with different DNS settings, I’m getting bizarre results for our (dynamic) IP and confused what is causing this.
If I just Google “My IP” I get our true IP.
If I go to any of the “what is my IP” websites (like myip.com) I get different results, like
curl ifconig.me and other hosts I get the false IP as well.
Changing the DNS server on the Mac results in different results.
