Pi-hole + DNSCrypt

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm setting up a Pi-hole with DNSCrypt following this guide https://github.com/pi-hole/pi-hole/wiki/DNSCrypt-2.0 and am installing it on a VM running Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS

Pihole on its own works fine but i cannot get DNS to resolve once i setup DNSCrypt. I'm thinking it has to do with DNSmasq but nothing I try works.


dnscrypt is forwarding on


and  dig google.com @ -p 5300 get and answer but dnscrypt-proxy -resolve google.com gets nothing

from pihole.log file its still trying to forward to rather than to

i have followed the directions and also tried setting the DNS in pihole interface as well as disabling IPv6 and nothing has worked

Any suggestions?


also considering using Pi-hole as an overall webfilter, adding more block lists or just using DNSforFamily or something like that as my down stream once its working, any suggestions as to witch route would be better?
