Cloudflare DNS Server

Postby imbaSD » Sun Apr 01, 2018 4:10 pm

Just read an News Article about Cloudflare's DNS (1.1.1.1 or 1.0.0.1) and as they mention it's the fastest DNS server.
https://www.cloudflare.com/dns/
https://www.dnsperf.com/
https://1.1.1.1/

Could it be added to the list with DNS servers at Gargoyle?

Tested this out on openwrt and it is verry fast. You need to use dnsmasq full to get dns ECC working tho.

+1 for this. Probably another good alternative for QoS ping target as well.

The same was requested not too long ago, although here is probably the appropriate place to do it.

Secondary DNS (1.0.0.1) looks down for me, though. Anyone else?

I’m suitably impressed, but I don’t want to keep expanding the list of DNS servers. The option to add a custom one exists and works great. People can use that.

I have never installed dnsmasq full in Gargoyle. I am running OpenWRT snapshot on my mane router at the mo.
But if you were to try it out I think it mite work. You would have to log into your Gargoyle router and do:
opkg update
opkg install dnsmasq-full
opkg remove dnsmasq

Then using winSCP log into your router and make your /etc/config/dhcp file look like this

=

config dnsmasq
option domainneeded '1'
option localise_queries '1'
option rebind_protection '1'
option rebind_localhost '1'
option local '/lan/'
option domain 'lan'
option expandhosts '1'
option authoritative '1'
option readethers '1'
option leasefile '/tmp/dhcp.leases'
option resolvfile '/tmp/resolv.conf.auto'
option nonwildcard '1'
option localservice '1'
option dnssec '1'
option dnsseccheckunsigned '1'
option strictorder '1'
option serversfile '/tmp/adb_list.overall'

config dhcp 'lan'
option interface 'lan'
option start '100'
option limit '150'
option leasetime '12h'

config dhcp 'wan'
option interface 'wan'
option ignore '1'
