Hello *,

I wanted to use the DNScrypt feature coming from the Voxel Firmware and after read carefully some threads.
I tried this:

root@R9000:/etc$ /etc/init.d/dnscrypt-proxy-2 enable
root@R9000:/etc$ /etc/init.d/dnscrypt-proxy-2 start
DNSCrypt-Proxy-2 is not enabled in nvram. Exit.

Very odd! (Even a reboot ;))

So I checked the setting in NVRAM and nothing was defined...
root@R9000:~$ nvram show |grep -i dnscrypt2

To fix this, I used:
root@R9000:~$ nvram set dnscrypt2=1
root@R9000:~$ nvram commit
root@R9000:~$ /etc/init.d/dnscrypt-proxy-2 start

Is it normal behaviour? Or a little issue in the FW?

All you are supposed to do nowadays is:

nvram set dnscrypt2=1
nvram commit

and then reboot your router
Thanks. Perhaps I missed something in the different threads talking about that.
