The following is a set-up guide for CIRA Canadian Shield for the Ubuntu Desktop option. See all the set-up guides for Canadian Shield.
Before you proceed...
- If you set-up CIRA Canadian Shield on your router/gateway then the whole network is protected and you will not need to set-up individual devices.
- Before changing your DNS settings write down your existing IP addresses in case you need to go back. Go to the bottom of this page to see if you have configured it correctly.
Once you are done, you can go here to test your configuration.
A summary of DNS resolver addresses can be found here.
If you use this operating system then you probably know what you are doing already. For most Linux distributions, configure DNS settings through Network Connections Manager.

2. Click on Edit Connections to open the Network Connections.
3. Select and highlight your connection name.
4. Click Edit.
