Can we get a run down on how dns proxy works?

 

Do we have to set the VLAN DNS settings to AUTO?  

 

Thanks,

KG!

Yes. Auto in lan/vlan config.

Point DNS Proxy to 1.1.1.1 DoT or DoH and test it with opening https://1.1.1.1/help on the client.

It will clearly tell you if you're connected via DoT or DoH to 1.1.1.1 using router's DNS Proxy.

If you have the local DNS Server, you can choose Manual to type in your DNS Server.

Take a look:

Dude, I wonder if you're a robot.... that is 100% not what I was talking about.  I see that you do this a lot, not read the post correctly.  

 

The new feature DNS PROXY is what Im talking about... I have it enabled, so how do we point devices to the Proxy.  @Hank21  could chime in?

Hello @KimcheeGUN ,

 

This new DNS Proxy feature is used to encrypt DNS messages.

Actually it is very clear in the "Help" Tab, please refer to this:

thanks for the reply!

 

I actually got it entered and enabled.  How do I point the clients to it?  Set the dns servers on auto in vlan/lan configs?

To link the DNS proxxy with the LAN DHCP DNS setting is a bad idea. For example you have a domain in your local network with a domaincontroller which also have a internal DNS server. The clients need to point to the internal DNS. The internal DNS need to point to the gateway which forward the reguests via encrypted dns. Would make more sense to link it with wan settings and also optimize the ergonomics of the cloud frontend. Not clear how to handle this setting even with help text. And a button for testing would be nice. An option in the advanced section would fit perfect.

  @Hank21 I have the newest 5.12.x Omada Controller software (OC200) but I don't see this option. Is this because I have ER605v1?

You need a router firmware update that supports this... Do you self a favor, return the V1, and get a ER605 V2
