TLS help for dummies

false TLS inIOS. I have typed f48cd4 as the key in next dns app.Can not see any endpoint field in the ios app to enter domain name. Or is it endpoint name?

what more do i need to do to get TLS running correct?

when using next dns, do i need to install a certificate?

To setup ios for certivicates, do i have to go to icloud.com on web? Could not find any setting for certificates in ios iPAD SETTINGS.

CAN YOU PROVIDE  INSTRUCTIONS FOR TLS dummies

  • Do you know if the guide means ios settings or nextdns settings app? I can't find any button called profile downloaded. Not in ios settings. Not in nextdns appdownloaded from app store.

      “Profile downloaded” is not the name of a button; you need to tap on the profile that you created using the given link which will be displayed on top in the iOS settings once you downloaded it (on that iOS device).

  • Thank you for the replays. Still stuck. After hitting the download button after configuring, i don't get an allow button, only download and cancel button. Maybe it is because i enter wrong numbers and words?

     

    i use f48cd4 

     

    the device name Terjes--iPad-f48cd4.dns.nextdns.io

      1. Use Mobile Safari to surf to https://apple.nextdns.io/ on your iOS device
      2. Fill in Configuration ID and Device Name
      3. Tap on Download (button)
      4. Allow download of profile
      5. Go to General - Profiles in the iOS Settings
      6.  Tap on the freshly downloaded profile (on top of the list)
      7. Tap on Install (button)

    • EIRET you probably shouldn’t publish your configuration ID

  • This is so cool. It works. Safari was the trick.

     

    however, it    's sad that PassePartPort disable internet after installing TLS. 

     

    I use nextdns without vpn at this moment. Need to find a vpn provider that let's me configure custom dns.

  • PS: I noticed that you use the term TLS multiple times; what do you want to use NextDNS for?

    (I think the setup via an Apple profile uses DOH, not DOT - DNS over HTTPS, not DNS over TLS)

    • Rob HTTPS is over TLS. All those encrypted protocols are based on TLS, even Quic.

      Olivier Poitrey  I know,  but some people really want DOT instead of DOH and since EIRET mentioned TLS a lot I wanted to know what (s)he meant by that (DOT  or just encrypted DNS?).

      Great! The tested resource is running on the latest TLS 1.3.

      EIRET That would be the case for most of your traffic, even without NextDNS, since most sites use https (TLS) these days.

      I might be wrong, but I think the site you mentioned is for testing a server, not a client. What URL did you enter there?

      Rob Yes, to me it also looks like a server test. I took a chance since i am a amateur it device user, Copied from the setup guide. For "John Router", you would use John--Router-f48cd4.dns.nextdns.io as your DNS-over-TLS endpoint. This adress are called both domain and endpoint. Looks like it worked. Excellent result . To my biggest surprise today. It may not be a true positive. Maybe a result based on something other parameters.

       

      Thank you for the help with nextdns certification install.

  • After installing the TLS certification nextdns configuration file, i am sure that in  Analytics < Blocked domains - blocked domains  increased by about 5 times. Last 24 ours the SSL Google analytics is blocked 113 times. As an average before SSL Google analytics was blocked about 20-30 times. I am pretty sure, based on memory.
