{SOLVED} CHANGING THE DNS

Postby intellinux420 » 2018-12-23 05:27

I am using Open DNS: 208.67.222.222; 208.67.220.220; 8.8.8.8;

In the file
/etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf.
. I have already edited to:
prepend domain-name-servers 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220, 8.8.8.8;


Then re-started the computer and also the network manager manually.

Code: Select all
cat /etc/resolv.conf

Gives name server as
208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220, 8.8.8.8


But when i do the DNS leak test on the website then it still shows me my real address.

What am I missing ???

DNS is a system that will resolve IP-addresses of website and has nothing to do with hiding yourself.
