dns over tls nextdns on freebsd

I have a running working config on port 53. I would like to also enable DNS over TLS, so Nextdns also listens on 853.

I tried adding


and while nextdns restarts and runs, its not actually working.

Netstat is also not showing the port.

How do I do this? I tried searching wiki and knowledgebase but I can't find a clear answer.

    Is there a reason why you want to have local DoT? I don’t think that is possible with the CLI currently and it would also require an encryption certificate.

    Because I had a host that had hardcoded cloudflare DNS queries flooding my logs (they are blocked).  I wanted to catch and redirect to NextDNS via NAT rule. Turned out that "feature" could be turned off so theres more need.

    Im guessing the certificate can be self signed, I think thats how unbound does it?
