This is useful in testing/troubleshooting Adblock.

 Blacklisted or Custom entries can be tested to see if Adblocker is properly redirecting them by using the nslookup tool on Windows, Linux or OS X. Simply run nslookup and enter the domain/URL in question. If it resolves to 0.0.0.0, then Adblock is working properly, and the domain will be blocked. You can also check FreshTomato's Syslog (System log) to see whether Adblock activity is reflected there.

-Increasingly, more and more device are using DoH (DNS over HTTP(S), DNSSEC and other encrypted DNS lookup protocols. Adblock will not work with these DNS lookups.
