I realize this is a stupid question, this setting is for the router, not the device.

Hello guys,

I want to use IPv6 DoT server. According to the wiki, I need to specify IPv6 DNS as router's LAN IPv6 Link-Local Address.

But it seems that Windows has abandoned local IPv6 DNS by default…

Update: I’m not sure this is a Windows issue right now, I noticed that my Android device is also not using local IPv6 DNS.

But I confirm that I have manually configured IPv6 DNS.
Is this because the device will automatically convert the Link-Local Address to a public address? It doesn't seem to make sense...
