I have been using dnscrypt-proxy and protonvpn on Mint 19.3. They both seem to be working fine (some times I have some doubts about DNS and IP leaking...). Problem is, I can't make qname minimisation to work. When I run one of the commands bellow, I get the answer displayed:

Code: Select all

$ a.b.qnamemin-test.internet.nl.
"NO - QNAME minimisation is NOT enabled on your resolver :("

$ dig a.b.qnamemin-test.internet.nl TXT
[...]
;; ANSWER SECTION:
a.b.qnamemin-test.internet.nl. 10 IN	TXT	"NO - QNAME minimisation is NOT enabled on your resolver :("
Is there a command or a configuration file I must deal with to make it work?

hey, check this thread out it might can help you

https://discourse.pi-hole.net/t/unbound ... n/10038/11 have you installed the necessary packages?

according that thread it feels that it might work 50% of the times.

meby if your consern about network security in your router meaby a good ide is to check for an vpn, you could cahnce your dns in the router to google for better security and speed.
