Feature request: Custom DNS over TLS

We curently have an option to choose between 2 services Cloudflare or NextDNS for DoT on the custom DNS section.
We would like to have the possibility to define a custom DoT name instead of having only those 2 choices, otherwise can someone point me to the configuration file where such setting is saved?

Best regards


Unfortunately it seems the 2 DoT choices (Cloudflare/NextDNS) are hardcoded, so to get an other DoT service working, I had to override an one of the 2 servers configuration files:

Hopefully this changes will survive after updates.


Any updates on how this worked for you long term?

I would also like to use a different DoT provider than the two providers hardcoded in. It would be good if we could specify a DNS over TLS provider instead of only having two to pick from.

(In my case I want to use Quad9 so if it was added to the hardcoded list I would be happy about that. But seems like it might be easier to just let us specify a provider?)

If you choose DNS over https there are a lot of choices in firmware 4.x

Yeah, I have a preference for DNS over TLS where possible, but either one does do what it’s supposed to do.

Why the option to enter custom DNS only aplies to HTTPS and not to TLS? I like to use the gl.inet ui and I prefer to make changes there. @alzhao @yuxin.zou

Would also love this feature ^^ I know we can customize the Cloudflare configuration & replace the resolvers by editing stubby, but that’s a annoying work around. Would be great to just set it directly from the gl panel.

We are considering this feature.


If you use adguard home you can add dns over tls there too for now it’s the best solution I think
