no DoH if using Linked IP DNS servers?

is this the expected behaviour? I added the 2 IP4 DNS servers and the logs show no encrypted DNS. Does this tell me I can't get DoH this way?

    ipv4/ipv6 dns is unencrypted; your router would have to support DoH natively (where you can enter your NextDNS DoH address) or you'll likely have to use DoH though one of the NextDNS app(s), a 3rd party app (if on Android), or natively through a browser's secure dns setup. The latter option will only encrypt traffic through the configured browser only.

      NextDNS no, I just can't access the internet. 

      I got a 2nd setup where I do it differently, I'm running the NextDNS CLI directly on the Firewalla device and pointing the DNS servers in Firewalla to the very same IP. Caching is done by NextDNS…

    After switching DoH on/off several times I was able to use the DoH link in Firewalla. It seems to work only breaks one backup process but most importantly it's not encrypted. On my.nextdns I don't get any encrypted reading…

    Firewalla had to replace an old ca certificate, now it’s working via its DoH settings
