Is NextDNS compatible working with iCloud private relay?
Hi, I would like to ask if NextDNS can work with iCloud Private Relay? I just upgraded to iOS 15.4 from iOS 14.8.1 a few days ago and it seems like NextDNS don’t work with iCloud Private Relay because I keep getting this error whenever I try to go to any website:
Safari cannot open the page because it
could not establish a secure connection to
Anybody know if I did anything wrong or…? Thanks
Some people on here might have more knowledge than me but my experience shows iCloud Private Relay would conflict with NextDNS. Also I would see in the WiFi DNS manual settings it would say DNS is handled by Private Relay, not my personalized NextDNS. Someone on here in another thread said he could see when both Private Relay and NextDNS were running together there was 2 lookups in his logs showing clearly so it’s like 2 DNS services we’re doing it instead of just 1, NextDNS.
Disabling Private Relay I would think (mine is currently this) showing the green dot that it’s connected to NextDNS.
Private Relay sometimes for me would not open pages and in the Apple Beta information it describes this issue might happen.
I’m constantly changing things and tinkering with settings though so im not wholly on NextDNS while doing some things. It is solid though, meaning NextDNS. Wish you well.
I meant to add, turning off iCloud Private Relay might get you running again
New user here, but I am running nextDNS along with Apple private relay with IOS and not having any issues. The logs show blocking happening and an extended DNS leak test shows the nextDNS servers. The nextDNS configuration light is green. I like this combination because I get the benefits of both IP masking and tracker blocking without the overhead of a VPN. Am I missing something?
When I use NextDNS on my Mac and iPhone with the Private Relay on the DNS lookup shows Cloudflare DNS, instead of NextDNS. So I assume it's not working when both are on.
if you use an apple configuration profile or the nextdns app, private-relay is compatible with nextdns. if you use safari, the test on the nextdns page under "installation" fails, but the resolution still runs via nextdns.
