Howto use Cloudflare DNS ?



  • Hi forum
    I seen this page.
    https://www.netgate.com/blog/dns-over-tls-with-pfsense.html

    I'm trying to use the Cloudflare DNS servers at 1.1.1.3 and 1.0.0.3.
    Added those DNS Servers in System, General Setup. (Having just a single WAN connection)
    Also, Services, DNS Resolver, General Settings :
    DNS Query Forwarding : Ticked = Enable Forwarding Mode, Ticked = Use SSL/TLS for outgoing DNS Queries

    Is there some way to check whether this is working as intended ?
    It seems my LAN clients can still dig xxx.com, sexy.com, etc.

    Thx's for any tips or clues.



  • Hi,

    The tip from 2 days ago was :

    (click to see the blog, and Q&A)

    So I guess DOT is still in the works.

    Btw : the reverse of 1.1.1.3 doesn't even exist yet - neither for 1.0.0.3.
    Take note that the tld '.three' doesn't exist.

    The blog you mentioned is old : DOT is TLS based, so it needs a valid host name - the one that is also embedded into the cert they present to you.

    So, when you use 1.1.1.1 it would be set up as

    edit : I guess 1.1.1.3 etc can be sued, just not yet using TLS.

    edit again :

    Yep, I understand that you didn't liked this :
