FAQ 133: Run as a GUICategory: Troubleshooting | Updated: 09/27/2011 4:44 PM
Note: When running dnsredir.exe (the GUI) then dnsrsvc.exe (the service) should not be started (it's one or the other).
You must leave a user logged in to keep the GUI running and for DNS to work.
Without DNS Redirector running no client will be able to surf the Internet or reach internal network resources by name.
By putting a shortcut to dnsredir.exe in your Startup folder, and using TweakUI or Autologon
you can ensure DNS Redirector starts automatically if the system reboots.
The alternative, so it will run without any user logged in, is to run it as a service.
After you check or un-check Authorized or Blocking you must press Enter to save the change.
