DNScrypt-proxy 2.0.x under LM18.x? How?

Post by arvY99 » Tue Sep 18, 2018 6:15 am

Hi,

For some months I was using dnscrypt-proxy 1.6 with the DNS set as 127.0.0.2 according to http://www.webupd8.org/2014/08/encrypt- ... -with.html, it suddenly stopped to work (no more dns, no more connection to sites). The selected resolver in Netherlands was maybe unreachable?!?!
I removed the 'old' version with 'apt-get purge' then tried to install the new version 2.0.16 from the proposed ppa:shevchuk/dnscrypt-proxy.
The first step is to stop all that is listening to port 53 with ss -lp 'sport = :domain' (https://github.com/jedisct1/dnscrypt-pr ... tion-linux).
When entering this request I get two hits:
Netid State Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address:Port Peer Address:Port
udp UNCONN 0 0 127.0.1.1:domain *:*
tcp LISTEN 0 5 127.0.1.1:domain *:*
How am I supposed to stop them?

There is a tutorial to install dnscrypt-proxy under LM19, but the search function did not reveal any straight info for LM18.x, or I missed them.

Anyone successfully installed and using the new 2.0.x dnscrypt-proxy under LM18.x? I always get a list with my isp dns-servers when trying https://www.dnsleaktest.com/ after installing this protocol?!?!

Thanks in advance for any help!

Edit: in case: LM18.3 mate edition ;)

Hi,

Tried again according to the info in https://github.com/jedisct1/dnscrypt-pr ... ian-Ubuntu.
No success, either no connection or through the isp-dns-servers. Wondering if I should not delete the files involved in the configuration (resolv.conf, dnscrypt-proxy.service, etc...) in order to get new ones while installing dnscrypt-proxy?!

Edit: the search function did not find dnscrypt-proxy... now wondering if the apt get/apt install really downloaded/installed the file?!
