[Fork] [Asuswrt-Merlin 374 LTS] How to use custom DoT servers


Occasional Visitor
I have AC-66U with 374.43_52E7j9527 and I want it to use my NextDNS DoT server. How can I add custom DoT server like this xxxxx.dns.nextdns.io?


Part of the Furniture
The DoT feature of the WAN allows for custom servers (I assume any forks as well).

You could instead install the NextDNS utility on the router, which will configure Stubby w/ their DNS servers and reconfigure DNSMasq to call Stubby. But (iirc) that will only force your WLAN/LAN clients to use DoT, NOT the WAN itself. If you want the WAN to use DoT as well, you'll need to set "Wan: Use local caching DNS server as system resolver (default: No)" under Tools > Other Settings to Yes.
