Possible configuration issue
Good evening everyone.
I would like help configuring NextDNS for use on my device.
I correctly did the steps to include DNS IP in IPv4 and restarted the device. But when accessing my page, it says that I am not using the service yet and informs the other resolver/IP being used at the moment.
Where am I going wrong?
For Windows you have to use DoH instead of normal DNS config. In NextDNS control panel you will find your DoH URLs and in this link you will find help how to configure DoH in Windows.
Have you linked your IP? Open your terminal, what is the full output of
nslookup google.com 220.127.116.11
and does your NextDNS logs show the request? If not, it's possible your ISP is hijacking DNS request, verify it with comparing the output of
nslookup playboy.com 18.104.22.168
nslookup playboy.com 22.214.171.124
If you get the same output, your ISP is hijacking DNS requests, and you need to use DoH/DoT/DoQ either from the browser, NextDNS app, a third-party app like YogaDNS, etc.
If the request from the terminal gets logged correctly, verify that your browser's Secure DNS setting is either disabled entirely or set to your unique DoH address.
Once again put the IPs for DNS... But Windows or whatever ignores the configuration.
I think the only way on Win10 is to use NextDNS app to apply globally. Otherwise go in each browser settings and set the DOH
In according with @fede2782, i saw so many scenarios that included adapters that can be modified by some change in Windows setup. The secure options are:
* Nextdns App installation in Windows: Also works with VPN providers if you use it.
* Manual add Nextdns server in Android/IOS (app not adviced here).
* You can also add DNS-over-HTTPS in every browser and if you have a personal router, you should also add your NextDNS servers.
Note: I shoudn't advice to modify manual DNS on Windows because can be changed by other apps and also if the driver of the network adapter required to be reinstalled all the setup will be deleted and there'll be a security risk.
