I use OpenDNS and I'd like to force users of the branch routers to only allow use of OpenDNS (for content filtering). Where can I do this in the BR setup?

I recommend setting the DNS IP for OpenDNS in the DHCP options of the Network Settings, and then making a firewall rule that limits the destination to only the OpenDNS IP(s) for the DNS protocol. (Any - OpenDNS - DNS Service - Permit, then a second rule to deny DNS anywhere else)
