I have problems trying to configure OpenDNS. I have contacted OpenDNS support but they did not answer. I cannot access websites like Twitter and Facebook. another example Twitter cannot be accessed.

I tried welcome.opendns.com (did not work, shows not using OpenDNS. OpenDNS not using.

Using nslookup:

 $ nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com. 208.67.222.222
Server:     208.67.222.222
Address:    208.67.222.222#53

Non-authoritative answer:
which.opendns.com   text = "7.sin"

Try running dns-fix. This worked for me. Linux Mint 14 has OpenDNS built in so I think this just sets up the OpenDNS stuff for you.
