Is CS leaking DNS?

Postby YoYoMa » Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:19 pm

Hi all,

I entered dnsleaktest.com and the initial test shows that my DNS was indeed the VPN one. However, when clicking on "extended test" I can see my home IP address in the list. Does it also happen to you? How can I avoid this behavior?

I tried adding the option `block-outside-dns` to the OpenVPN configuration but this test still reveals my home IP address. :crazy:

Hey there !

Which OS and version are you on?

Perhaps the resolver sees more than one nameserver entry :?: ?

e.g. on *nixes resolv.conf has more than one resolver apart from

:arrow: 212.83.175.31 cf-i.deepdns.net

Using a non-widget method to connect but upon connect to CS dnsleaktest.com on my end only shows the above ip and no others (this is normal, and only this IP should appear).

The other place to look into is the router's settings. Under WAN settings etc.
