VPN (Custom DNS) + NextDNS: This device is using NextDNS with no configuration.
I am very new to NextDNS so excuse me if this has been explained somewhere else.
I was able to sucesfully use NextDNS with Mullvad VPN on my iPhone and iPad. On my Mac, I was trying to use a similar setup and thought it should be even easier, as Mullvad VPN allows for custom DNS servers in the app.
My current setup is as follows:
- Mullvad VPN set to use the two custom domains from my NextDNS Setup page.
- Mullvad succesfully connects and I have an established internet connection
- Checking on Browserleaks and DNS Leak Test, the NextDNS DNS is sucesfully recognized
But: Under NextDNS Setup I get the following error: "This device is using NextDNS with no configuration. Make sure to link your IP address in the Linked IP section below."
I can remove this error if I relink the current Mullvad VPN IP but I'd have to do it everytime I change the Mullvad server.
My question now is what impact does this error have on my setup?
Thanks for your help.
