I have seen that there a few topics around this but none of them offered a solution to my problem so here’s a new one.
I have a Raspberry Pi on which I have installed OpenVPN (pi-vpn) and cloudflared.
cloudflared version 2018.6.2 (built 2018-06-15-0929 UTC)
I have edited /etc/openvpn/server.conf and made sure that only
push “dhcp-option DNS 127.0.0.1:5053”
Now, I don’t know if this works. If Cloudflare DOH is used by the VPN.
So to test it I temporarily changed it to > push “dhcp-option DNS 126.96.36.199” as I know that OpenDNS offers a page to check whether you are using their DNS or not. I have restarted the Pi, restarted the iPhone I was connected from (through the VPN), nothing. It would still say that I was not using OpenDNS.
So it seems that the dhcp-option DNS … parameter is not enforced…?
I also wanted to use cloudflared (127.0.0.1:5053) to resolv the local DNS queries, so I edited my /etc/resolv.conf to only contain nameserver 127.0.0.1:5053 (I also tried with 192.168.1.X:5053 - the local IP of the Pi), unfortunately I wasn’t able to navigate.
Am I doing something completely wrong here?
- Why isn’t OpenVPN using (if not) the DNS that I set in dhcp-option
- Is it normal that I am unable to navigate using cloudflared to resolve the DNS queries?
