[Tutorial] Set Up Your Own DNS to Block WiiU Updates

User d4mation recently posted a great tutorial on how to setup your own DNS server on a VM, raspberry pi or VPS.

Read below and setup your own server in just a few minutes!

“In light of both Tubehax DNS and chncdcksn DNS being down, I decided I didn’t want to be reliant on someone else’s server in order to block updates. However, I didn’t want to block the Nintendo Domains necessary via my router since I also have a 3DS set up with A9LH and I didn’t want to block eShop access on it. This meant I needed to run a small DNS of my own that I could point my Wii U and only my Wii U toward.

Any computer running a Debian-based Linux Distro can follow these steps, including the Raspberry Pi (Which I used, since I already was using it to host the Web Browser Exploits locally).

It is pretty easy to do if anyone wants to set it up:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dnsmasq

sudo nano /etc/dnsmasq.conf

From there, enter this at the end of the file:

# General DNS Settings

domain-needed
bogus-priv
no-resolv
server=8.8.8.8
server=8.8.4.4
cache-size=4096
local=/home/
expand-hosts
domain=home
dhcp-range=192.168.0.2,192.168.0.255,255.255.255.0,14d
dhcp-option=option:router,192.168.0.1
dhcp-option=252,"\n"

# Wii U Update Blocker

address=/nus.cdn.shop.wii.com/127.0.0.1 
address=/nus.cdn.wup.shop.nintendo.net/127.0.0.1
address=/nus.wup.shop.nintendo.net/127.0.0.1
address=/nus.c.shop.nintendowifi.net/127.0.0.1

Then just restart the Service for it to take effect:

sudo /etc/init.d/dnsmasq restart

Now if you provide the Local IP of your DNS Server as your Primary DNS (and your Secondary DNS if you’re being extra careful) on your Wii U/3DS it should block all requests properly And you don’t have to worry about all these DNS going downconstantly :^)

You will probably want to assign a Static IP to your custom DNS within your Local Network (This can often be done simply via your Router Settings) so that it doesn’t get randomly assigned a new one.”

If you need a windows alternative you can use BIND which you can download here.
