2.8.9 does not respect custom DNS settings

  • I run a local DNS server for the purpose of ad blocking and privacy. While my AMPLIFI is set up to use the DNS server on my LAN, it does not always do so.

    I verified this by clearing my computer's DNS cache and pinging a host that should not resolve using the local DNS server. Not only is my computer able to ping that host, the local DNS server shows no record of the query from the AMPLIFI. I have performed network captures on my laptop to confirm that it is only making DNS queries against my AMPLIFI's IP.

  • Looks like I had to select "Bypass DNS Cache" to get the desired behavior.
