The Guest Wifi is on a complete different network (with rules) so no worries 
with Hippa etc.  The data sync service runs at night (on a different port – 
with rules etc.).  I guess mentioning that was irrelevant.

I think you can force OpenDNS with a Mikrotik rule that redirects and DNS 
requests to OpenDNS (I think you can)

That data sync better be on a VPN and the guest Wifi better be on a Vlan you 
can get them and you in a lot of trouble... OpenDNS is good anyone that knows 
what there doing will get around Dns easy.. best way is to get real personal 
data some how and show guest or atleast use the script that shows them there 
location on the captive portal page to scare them a bit

If it's guest WiFi for people getting on Facebook/Instagram while sitting in 
the waiting room, I would definitely start with OpenDNS.  Check all of the 
things that need filtered out like porn, spyware, illegal stuff, etc.

We provide bandwidth to our local hospital and they use our connection for data 
sync offsite at night, but during the day it mostly serves their “Guest Wifi”.

They have had some abuse (file sharing) to the point where we have been getting 
notices on it.   Looking for options. (simple).   Does a solution like OpenDNS 
work in the case of file sharing or is there stuff IP based (not using DNS)?

Is OpenDNS the best one to use ?
