Pi hole on Arduino?

Recommended Posts

not to my knowledge.  you can however run it on basically any linux distro.

it can also be run on the $10 raspberry pi zero W  (although not recommended)

 

its doesnt take much to run, you may as well just get the rpi3, which is only $35

Raspberry Pi is the cheapest way.  Actually the cheapest way is to run a VM with pi hole and then incur no hardware cost but you have to leave that VM running 24x7.


Workstation: 8600k @ 4.6Ghz || ASRock Z390 Taichi Ultimate || Gigabyte 1080Ti || G.Skill DDR4-3800 @ 2666 4x8GB || Corsair AX1500i || 25 gallon whole-house loop.

HTPC/GuestGamingBox: Optoma HD142X 1080p Projector || 7600K@ 4.6 || Gigabyte Z270 Gaming 9  || EVGA Titan X (Maxwell) || Corsair RM650x || CPU+GPU watercooled 280 rad pull only.

Server Router (Untangle): 8350K @ 4.5Ghz || ASRock Z370 ITX || 2x8GB || EVGA G3 750W || CPU watercooled, 25 gallon whole-house loop.

Server VM/Plex/HTTPS: E5-2699v4 (22 core!) || Asus X99m WS || GT 630 || Corsair RM650x || CPU watercooled, 25 gallon whole-house loop.

Server Storage: Pent. G3220 || Z87 Gryphon mATX || || LSI 9280i + Adaptec + Intel Expander || 4x10TB Seagate Enterprise Raid 6, 3x8TB Seagate Archive Backup, Corsair AX1200i (drives) Corsair RM450 (machine) || CPU watercooled, 25 gallon whole-house loop.

On the Shelf: EVGA X99 micro2, 780, 740 GT, 210 w/ DVI port unsoldered (Hint: it can be done but it ain't easy). 

Laptop: HP Elitebook 840 G3 (Intel 8350U).

Why is it that it isn't recommended to run it on a raspberry pi zero w?

its recommended to run it other ethernet, which the rpi0w does not have.

it doesnt take a lot to run it, and doesnt even use much network resources, but its just easier to have your dns server connected directly.

You could always use a usb to Ethernet adapter like the ones in this topic:

but for the combined costs you're getting closer to the cost of a full sized RPi...


I will only ever answer to the best of my ability - there is absolutely no promises that I will be correct. Or helpful. At all.

An Arduino with an ethernet shield could probably do that job, but you would end up programming it from scratch.  The Pi-Hole software most likely won't fit on, much less run on, an AVR.

It would probably be easier to do on something like a Yun, which has a microprocessor running a Linux stack on board, but it's considerably more expensive than a Pi, and again you'll probably have to do a considerable amount of programming yourself.

 

I would just get a Raspberry Pi, I keep a few spun up and doing various tasks around the house, so once certain planned changes to my LAN are complete, I might just do something like that.
