Networking choice and VPN

Hello,

I selected 'Bridged' networking (unchecked Replicate Host Status) and am trying to use a VPN.

However I see DNS leaks and am wondering if there are some additional settings that I need to modify.

Thanks

DNS leak is very common with these VPNs

I suggest you to go to your browser: say Firefox

and then NETWORK SETTINGS > DNS OVER HTTPS

I hope it works. Please ask me further. I will help.

You can't be serious.

You're suggesting to use a DNS to bypass VPN DNS and defeat the purpose of VPN.

And are you sure DNS leaks are very common with these VPNs. Used a couple without any issue, am having problem with just one.

Also, had an issue with Bridged vs NAT that was posted in another thread.
