DNSCrypt no longer works.


Recently I was unable to connect to any websites anymore on any of my devices and after troubleshooting it turned out that my DNSCrypt proxy stopped working with NextDNS.

This is the result I'm now getting when DNSCrypt starts (I removed the actual query data):

Thu Jul 22 09:04:43 2021 daemon.err dnscrypt-proxy[3766]: Get https://dns.nextdns.io/......?dns=......: net/http: request canceled while waiting for connection (Client.Timeout exceeded while awaiting headers)
Thu Jul 22 09:04:43 2021 daemon.notice dnscrypt-proxy[3766]: dnscrypt-proxy is waiting for at least one server to be reachable

There have been no changes to the configuration, and it still matches the configuration that is displayed on my account. It just stopped working out of the blue.

IP's  still work, and when I navigate to


directly it let's me download a file.

    Are you pinning the certificate in the stamp?

      Only server_names has an added entry, and a static entry has been added with a sdns base64 stamp that when decoded only contains an ip address, hostname and the hexadecimal id. Just like the setup page told me to do when I first configured it.

      No certificate has been configured as far as I know, but I'm not entirely sure what certificate you are referring to because I haven't seen it being mentioned anywhere.
