NextDNS Issue - not working

Using NextDNS on asus-merlin with dnscrypt. No configuration changes on router or any other device on the network. Facing constant issues from the past 3 days.

1. Unable to resolve anything when using nextdns. works when using isp dns, cloudflare, opendns etc.

2. Sometimes only resolves nextdns.io but subdomains like help.nextdns.io or my.nextdns.io do not resolve

3. Google.com resolves but not cnn.com, yahoo.com, hotmail.com, etc. surprisingly these dns queries show up in nextdns logs but are not resolved.

4. Browsing works when using https://dns.nextdns.io/ in browser but same domains do not resolve when trying to ping using command line.

5. Everything works when using yoga dns.

Different results everytime I run the nextdns diag utility.

  • Seems like your network / ISP resolver is blocking dns.nextdns.io.

      Olivier Poitrey ISP is not blocking dns.nextdns.io

      1. Browsing works when using dns.nextdns.io in browser DOH

      2. Works when using dns.nextdns.io in Yoda DNS

      3. dns.nextdns.io resolves properly using command prompt

      4. nslookup when used with dns.nextdns.io resolves nextdns.io but resolving hotmail.com fails. query fails but still shows up in NextDNS logs

      5. everything starts working if DNSSEC is disabled. DNSSEC was working previously with NextDNS and still works with cloudflare, opendns, isp dns, etc.

      Looks like a DNSSEC issue, why it is not working with NextDNS and still works with other dns providers?

      Olivier Poitrey can you please check the output and see what the issue is?

    • Qadhi DNSSEC should be disabled if enabled. I'm not sure why it fails here, but DNSSEC will create other issues with a DNS filter like us as by design, we break DNSSEC when blocking domains or rewriting responses.

      Olivier Poitrey How come it was working before some of us faced downtime and a "fix" was deployed.

      https://help.nextdns.io/t/35hlztr/service-down?r=g9hlz4j#g9hlz4j

      and how it is still working for other NextDNS users?

      after disabling DNSSEC  iPhones with ios 14 are showing privacy warning when connected to my network "This network is blocking encrypted DNS traffic." Warning goes away if i switch to clouflare and enable DNSSEC.

    • Qadhi if I understand your setup correctly, you have assus-merlin running dnscrypt-proxy, so your DNS queries go through dnsmasq -> dnscrypt-proxy -> NextDNS, am I right?

      To try to reproduce the issue I need the version of each component (dnsmasq and dnscrypt-proxy) as well as their respective configuration.

      Olivier Poitrey used this new dns stamp and DNSSEC is now working

    • Qadhi please try creating a new config, change nothing and use it to see if it works. If it does, you can try to add options of the non-working config one by one to see which one is breaking DNSSEC.

  • NextDns not working from Italy, has been blocked for about 1 hour.
    these problems happen very often recently ....😥
    what do two servers need if they both go down? 

    See diag test:
