  • Should i use my vpn provider's native client or use a wireguard/openvpn client instead?
    2 projects | /r/VPNTorrents | 7 Jan 2023
    I am currently trying out Guetun in docker with ExpressVPN but am getting possible DNS leaks reported by this test. I ran this test in the docker exec console for my qBittorrent container which is routed through my Gluetun container. This is the output I get after running. I have also tried some other tests like doileak.com torrent IPtest. The reults i get from that say that I have an ipv4 udp leak. How do i know for sure that I'm not leaking my IP? TIA!
  • Do I need to install Stubby or dnscrypt-proxy ?

  • Please, help me understand how my IP was leaked
    2 projects | /r/VPNTorrents | 7 Sep 2021
    I've confirmed the following: * curl ifconfig.cc inside the qbittorrent container gives me the VPN IP, not my own. * Using https://ipleak.net shows my VPN IP, not my own, when downloading their torrent in qbittorrent. * When using https://github.com/macvk/dnsleaktest inside my qbittorrent container, I get a different set of DNS server than when using it outside of it. These are the servers specifically from inside: You use 6 DNS servers: [United States of America AS20473 The Constant Company LLC] [United States of America AS20473 The Constant Company LLC] [United States of America AS20473 The Constant Company LLC] 2001:19f0:5:18e8:5400:1ff:febe:3032 [United States of America AS20473 The Constant Company LLC] 2001:19f0:300:60d2::33 [United States of America AS20473 The Constant Company LLC] 2001:19f0:300:6256:5400:ff:fe1a:c6e7 [United States of America AS20473 The Constant Company LLC]
  • DNS for wireguard interface inside netns (with systemd-resolved)
    4 projects | /r/WireGuard | 30 May 2021
    I recreated the simple (wg moved into netns) setup and introduced the nsswitch file you posted above. I then ran a DNS leak test script from within the netns and it didn't report any leaks. I ran wireshark in parallel, and unlike before, there was no DNS traffic on the host's ethernet interface. This looks really promising.
