How can I open a URL on the terminal.
It’s just a verification URL for OpenDNS which needs to be opened using the IP address on which I am setting up OpenDNS.

I am not sure about the exact need here but have you tried curl to access the website? Does that fulfil your requirement?

curl domain.com

If not you can use LYNX to browse websites in Text Mode.

  • Thank you. Lynx was exactly what I needed.

    I tried xdg-utils but it didn’t work as a lot of dependencies were missing.
