DNS LEAK PROTECTION

Post by marcin » Tue Jul 03, 2018 10:57 am

Hello,
I would like to know if you enter DNS protection in the configuration files for OpenVpn? At the moment, by checking the website https://www.dnsleaktest.com/
DNS queries are open, it results from the analysis on the above link

Im not exactly sure what you mean by DNS protection.

I use cloud cloudflare DNS (1.1.1.1 & 1.0.0.1)... If you set the nameserver address on your router, pc, and on softether vpnserver there is no way your ISP DNS could leak.

OpenVPN pushes the DNS name server through DHCP from VPN Server. The setting is in Server Manager<Manage Virtual Hub<Virtual NAT and Virtual DHCP (Secure NAT<Secure NAT Configuration<DNS Server Address 1 & 2

I will present what dns protection is like on the example of protonvpn and nordvpn:
ProtonVpn - DNS Leak Prevention - ProtonVPN doesn't just protect your browsing traffic, we also protect your DNS queries. By routing your DNS queries through the encrypted tunnel and not relying on third party DNS providers, we ensure that your browsing activity cannot be exposed by leaks from DNS queries;
NordVpn - https://nordvpn.com/features/dns-leak-test/

that's what I wanted to do with this protection.
In that case, you can download the config file from http://www.vpngate.net/en/
can you somehow enable the protection of DNS queries?
