DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) vs DNS-over-TLS (DoT) vs DNSCrypt

This is an important distinction because it affects what port is used. DNS over TLS has its own port, Port 853. DNS over HTTPS uses Port 443, which is the standard port for HTTPS traffic.

Therefore I will use DNS over HTTPS (DoH).

DNS over TLS: the request itself, its content or response, is encrypted. So you wouldn’t know what was being requested, but they’d know you were using DNS over TLS.

On the other hand, DNS-over-HTTPS is an ugly hack, to try to camouflage DNS queries as web queries, and get them past redirecting proxies (such as many telcos use) and protocol filters and so forth.

Fix Windows 10

These registry key had no effect on my windows10, what worked was: Press WIN+R and write gpedit.msc Expand Administrative templates Expand Network Click DNS-client Double-click “Turn off smart multi-homed name resolution” Check the box called “Enabled” Click “Apply all” and then “OK”

For Windows 10, you can use “Local Policies” to deactivate the feature. Follow the steps below to do this:

Press WIN+R and write gpedit.msc Expand Administrative templates Expand Network Click DNS-client Double-click “Turn off smart multi-homed name resolution” Check the box called “Enabled” Click “Apply all” and then “OK”
