VPN overriding Manual DNS settings

Hi, i have managed to connect to the 1.1.1.1 server but when i connect my vpn by dns changes, is this normal? I want to be able to use the cloudfare server whilst using my vpn (surfshark), is this possible?
Thanks

That’s normal. VPNs tend to take over everything. I believe this is to also proxy your DNS to prevent DNS Leakage.

Ah ok, so if it want to use a faster DNS, I can’t use a VPN at the same time? Thanks

VPNs aren’t known for their speed, so that’s not much of a loss there.
