DNS LEAK TEST

Post by Birdman2can » Sun Nov 18, 2018 7:08 am

After I installed SoftEther VPN and established a connection through SoftEther VPN Gate Public Relay Servers, My IP Address showed me in Japan rather than BC, Canada. I ran a DNS Leak Test https://dnsleaktest.com/, Standard test immediatly exposed my IP address, the Extended test immediately exposed my IP address 6 out of 6 times. This is neither a private, nor secure situation and if there is no setting fix for this then I will have to look into a different VPN as a solution.

I have exactly the same problem with DNS leak,after connecting the ip address changes, and the DNS remains unchanged

Disable WebRTC in your browser, you can install an extension to do this:

Does that extension itself open up the browser to some vulnerability?

No, it doesn't and it wouldn't be of much use if it did. ;)
