New Around Here
New user here. I just installed Asuswrt-Merlin and NextDNS on my router today.
After a couple of false starts, everything worked well.
I have two questions:

First question: I wasn't sure how to answer the questions: "Enable caching?" and "Enable instant refresh?".
So I said yes to both of them.
What are the correct answers?
Is this documented somewhere?

Second question: The "nextdns log" command returns "Error: exit status 1".
Am I doing something wrong?
The nextdns status returns "running" and I tested the blocking and it is working.

If it matters, this is my config:

cache-size 10MB
bogus-priv true
timeout 5s
config 9322fa
log-queries false
max-ttl 0s
detect-captive-portals false
setup-router true
auto-activate false
control /var/run/nextdns.sock
cache-max-age 0s
hardened-privacy false
use-hosts true
listen localhost:53
report-client-info true

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
