I need Help with DNS/proxy etc.

Postby kingping1 » Tue Apr 17, 2018 3:11 am

Please help me guys on how to let other applications connect, when I have a DNScrypt on. for example. What proxy type do i need to use for one application that asks me : http,socks4,socks 4a, socks5, or socks5h? Also what is the server # and port # when turning on vpn and using DNSCrypt?

Please explain this and give me an example, as this is so confusing. Also I'm using Firefox as well, so do I need to add this setting to Firefox as well, or just run vpn and leave it alone?

Thanks

@OP

Once configured and activated, DNSCrypt is transparent to your system. Even though it is a proxy, it does not require an application to have explicit support for it, unlike Tor or I2P (for example).

Yes for onedrive and certain applications this is true, but for other applications like tresorit or Anki desktop applications it cant sync because it says something is wrong, because you are using a vpn and even after I disable the vpn it doesnt work because I think the vpn does something.

It could also be because I used the cloudfare dns setting 1.1.1.1. so maybe that is why?
