Re: linux DNS LEAK?

If you could also let us know the type of leak ? What browser do you use ? Presumably you went to a leak test site to find out. Assuming you are finding this out from say a home ISP internet connection. Assuming you have a Router . I would change the DNS in your router as has been suggested multiple...

Re: linux DNS LEAK?

I happen to be at work.... So I will wait till later to deeply respond.... Hopefully in the interim the original poster will respond with more info. I'm wondering if it's his choice of VPN causing all the havoc. I have not used or heard of his VPN so I am unsure at this point. If it is a free one ma...

Re: linux DNS LEAK?

The poster was not using TOR so I don't think hiding from 5eyes. Dnscrypt solves a man in middle but my experiance Is it is not the catch all solution. However if the user uses your suggestion And assume he has control of his own router I would Blank Dns default setting in router as well. This might...

Re: Best antivirus for Mint

1.) Sandbox your apps that interact with the Internet - especially you browser with firejail 2.) Lock down your router which is much more vulnerable than your linux machine 3.) Forget AV software - they are dangerous - they have admin privileges on your machine and all of the major ones have been h...

Re: Problem when verifying ISO

You Might try a VPN

But never the less I like port 443 rather than 80, for something this important 80 would be susceptible to MIM.

Re: Isn't "newbie" a warning to new users?

Of course, with windows, every "just" works, the operative word here being "just". I've spent several days now trying to convince Windwoes 10 to play a decent, undistorted sound on a laptop. It is a well known problem that has yet to be resolved! Of course, in Linux, it DOES work! :D Why persist wi...

Hello , So Sorry to hear about your Hand Condition . I am not sure if this will help , but they make "Mice" ( mouse) with a Track Ball.

Re: Isn't "newbie" a warning to new users?

Alvin , Something else to consider. You need to evaluate what exactly you need a computer for. To make sure Linux is right for you. For example , make sure any proprietary software you must have ( if any) is avail in Linux. If you mainly use a pc for office programs, surfing web, videos , photos , m...
