Latern VPN + NextDNS = doesn't work

NextDNS is blocking the Latern VPN connection.  I tried disabling all lists with ads, security features, and so on, but nothing helped.  There is nothing in the logs either.  How can this problem be solved?

  • Try to disable block bypass methods, that blocks VPNs for me. If that doesn't help, check the logs it should show exactly what function is blocking what.

  • Standard procedure:

    Check for errors (ensure the error is caused by DNS not giving the IP of Lantern VPN, so you're sure it's your DNS, and as such, NextDNS)

    Enable logs temporarily and try again

    Either disable the blocklist responsible for the blocking or whitelist all Lantern VPN domains manually (this is costly in terms of time)

    If it is block bypass methods, I tell you, do NOT enable it, alot of handy tools get blocked by it as well.

  • Well, you should know about the VPN that you want to use. Some VPN don't let the user to change the DNS Servers (NextDNS include).  In your case, Lantern VPN is same like psiphon which is force the user to use their own DNS.
