Hello, I just recently learned of DNS and tried configuring it onto my systems for more internet privacy. Decided to go for the Cloudflare’s malware mitigation version.
I initially set up 188.8.131.52 + 184.108.40.206 into my router DNS settings and seemed to get the connection working.
I went further and adjusted my IP settings under my wifi as well on my Windows 10 PC.
I also enabled the “use secured DNS” setting on Chrome and set it to Cloudfare.
Lastly, I added the DNS to NordVPN’s connection.
When testing on 220.127.116.11/help, I noticed that if I have the chrome or VPN options enabled, I’m no longer connected to 18.104.22.168. Otherwise, I’m successfully connected. I suppose this mean I shouldn’t have the VPN nor Chrome Setting enabled so that my connections aren’t compromised.
My biggest issue is that I’d like to use my VPN concurrently with a successful connection to the Cloudflare DNS - could use some help with that please. I seem to be able to do so on my iphone and ipad but can’t get the web version of NordVPN to do the same.
Also would like to know if the browser and wifi steps are redundant and I should just reset them back to default since the wifi settings would seem to cover the DNS connections.
Lastly, I would also like to set up DoH but can’t figure out how to do so. Web searches led me to the settings I adjusted in chrome and windows above but no luck getting 22.214.171.124/help to confirm it either.
Any help appreciated, thanks!
