Can 1.1.1.1 be used to find out one's public ip address?

#1

Something along the lines of running
dig +short myip.opendns.com @resolver1.opendns.com
on linux, but with 1.1.1.1 instead of opendns?

I don’t believe so, but that is a nice party trick. I will pass it along to the resolver team to consider implementing!

Something like dig TXT resolver.dnscrypt.info can also be useful.

It’d be an extremely useful party trick! I look forward to this being implemented :slightly_smiling_face:

I’d love to second that!
Since Cisco has “reworked” OpenDNS, it has been unreliable for me. Currently I am using Google, like this:
dig -6 TXT +short o-o.myaddr.l.google.com @ns1.google.com
dig -4 TXT +short o-o.myaddr.l.google.com @ns1.google.com

But, I mean, Google… This is Cloudflare. Would be great!!
