Prevent DNS Redirect

Is there a way or has anyone built a rule to stop a DNS redirect?  Sites like OpenDNS will do a DNS redirect when a URL is typed wrong and present the user with a list of potential URLs.  Looking for a potential way to stop that.

Re: Prevent DNS Redirect

You can program OpenDNS not to do that (at least when you have an account with them).  Anyway, DNS doesn't go through WebWasher...

In theory if you register with opendns you can put your static external IP in and set the don't display search suggestions setting for your IP.

Another option is to block url.destination.ip == opendns's servers.
