I've just set up NEXTdns on all my parents devices and Home router (ipv4 with linked IP)
I've noticed many Facebook, Apple, Google and teamviewer DNS queries on their router configuration. All devices on the house have nextdns app or profile configured. The queries seem to duplicate that of a macbook pro running the app.
Why would this be? Should the queries not be encrypted and hidden from the router?
I can view the macbook DNS queries too on respective config.
(Picture above from Router Configuration)
Linked IP config doesn't use encryption. Only DoH and DoT.
If your router doesn't support that, your setting with linked IP is correct so if you want using encrypted DNS, then you need using the App or "private DNS" feature on Android/ "profile" feature on iOS
I'm using the apps and DoH on all devices in the house (except Chromecast)
I would not expect to see the DNS logs for teamviewer, Facebook etc from the router
Do you use different profiles for router and the other devices?
When you look at details in the logs what do you see?
From the screenshoot it looks like an Apple device logs.
If the Chromecast go through router all the apps you cast will use the router.
I have a configuration profile for my router and a configuration profile for my macbook. The macbook is running the nextdns App. I am seeing duplicate logs in both configuration profiles.
I would expect NOT to see macbook pro DNS logs on the router configuration profile
