How does NetGuard handle DNS?
NetGuard 2.264 on Android 9
I noticed that DNS Daemon is blocked by NetGuard for both WiFi and Data. It must have been set like this for at least a couple of months. Meanwhile I've yet to experience any major network connection issues. Web browsers work as expected, as well ass the other network connected apps that I use.
On the logs, I can see DNS request coming from root not DNS Daemon and these being blocked. Note that the 2 VPN DNS IPs I set to be the default under the NetGuard/Advanced Options are reflected on the logs and show on DNSLeak, no sign of Google DNS ips.
Because of this I ask, how does NetGuard handle DNS? Should DNS Daemon be allowed or can it be left blocked?
(This could be unrelated. I've no screen on/off rules set.) The one network connection issue I have, this being more of a connection reload/refresh issue. For example, from time to time I must restart an app in order for it to refresh its connection to/reconnect to the network. Most times, restart being, swiping the app off of the recent-app list.
What is your suggestion?
