Many consider dnscrypt to be deprecated now that DNS over TLS (DoT) is available. Support for DoT was added to Asuswrt-Merlin firmware in 384.11 release:Hello, thank you very much for this dnscrypt-proxy installer. I have been researching on how to set up dnscrypt on RT-AC86U and I finally found this post which made me really happy!
I have a question though. I am new to Merlin's Firmware and read RMerlin's Wiki / Documentation and came accross information that it's not recommended doing frequent writes to the Jffs area, as it will prematurely wear out the flash chip. So is it still safe to install dnscrypt-proxy to Jffs partition as indicated in the post on the first page? Or would it be better (if it's possible) to install it on a USB flash drive?
If it's possible to install it to a USB flash drive, could anyone please direct me to some guides or explain how to do this?
Thank you in advance.
dnsprivacy.org has a good summary of the DNS privacy solutions on their site as does tenta.com.384.11 (8-May-2019)
- NEW: Added DNS Privacy feature, with support for
DNS-over-TLS (also known as DoT).
You can configure it on the WAN -> Internet Connection
page. You can manually add your own servers, or chose
one (or a few) from the preset list. (themiron)
