Usage questions for DNSCrypt-Proxy
I have some specific usage questions about DNSCrypt-Proxy for use with Ubuntu.
I followed a guide and ended with the command
dnscrypt-proxy --daemonize –user=dnscrypt
Without any further switches/options does it default to using OpenDNS's resolver server?
I want to use specific servers, I found reference to pointing it to the full path of a CSV file.
--resolver-name="resolver's name in file" --resolvers-list="full path to file"
What is the CSV format for use with DNSCrypt?
The header of dnscrypt-resolvers.csv from github is
Name,Full name,Description,Location,Coordinates,URL,Version,DNSSEC validation,No logs,Namecoin,Resolver address,Provider name,Provider public key,Provider public key TXT record
Does DNSCrypt really read all those fields or are some just for human reference only?
Ive been using --test=0 to see if I can whittle down to a basic format and so far I got
Name,Resolver address,Provider name,Provider public key
Still uncertain if I need the other fields. Also that needs to be the header, can't have it blank or have a resolver entry as the first line.
DNSCrypt is not an OpenDNS product. You better look for help here: http://dnscrypt.org/
This is now dnscrypt.info.
" why is there a forum category?"
Because OpenDNS supports the server side of DNSCrypt, i.e. it responds to DNSCrypt encrypted DNS lookups. OpenDNS is not in charge of the client side of DNSCrypt where you are having questions for. The client program is not from OpenDNS but is represented by the other site.
