Does NextDNS work with router and all Mac/iOS Devices anymore

I am a paying customer and have my router setup for NextDNS to block everything on my network - porn, ads, etc.

NextDNS no longer works with the latest Mac or iOS updates.  Nothing is blocked in Safari.  NextDNS is just worthless at this point.  My router is using the custom / addresses.

Did I miss some significant changes that I need to make?  The whole point of using NextDNS was to enforce rules across my whole network on all devices to block porn, hate groups, and ads for kids.

    Still works fine for me on:

    • macOS Sonoma 14.3
    • iOS 17.3
    • iPadOS 17.3

    Does your “latest” refer to these stable versions or are you running the betas of the next release?

    No problems here.   Running the CLI on MacOS, and profile on iPadOS and iOS.

       I had the same problem on iOS 17.3 and disabling private relay fixed it. So thanks for your help here 👍😀

    Yes @rob those are my latest as well.  Thx.

    Yes, I had private relay enabled on my phone.  But I just turned it off, and Safari still isn't affected by NextDNS on the router.

    Is there any new tutorial on ensuring I set this up correctly?  It was fine just a few months ago.  My goal is to block ads and other crap on my entire network without having to mess with every device.
