Router (ipv6 dns) (
submitted 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago) by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

Good evening.

I have a need for a new router thinking of a Flint2 which must be able to route ipv6 dns to a destination of my choice.

Any ideas?

route ipv6 dns to a destination of my choice

Does this mean setting custom DNS server (so devices using DHCP picks up what DNS server you want them to use) or intercept DNS requests (MITM or use firewall rule to drop outbound 53 port requests)?

I think most up-to-date OpenWrt routers can do later (with normal, unencrypted DNS requests), see

The model you mentioned (Flint 2) is supported by OpenWrt.

I am pretty sure you can set your own DNS server in Android.

U can but alas only ipv4. I disabled ipv6 in the router and everything is fine. Ipv6 if i read correctly is hardcoded into android and i cannot change my routers dns
