    I use DNSCrypt v0.0.6 and a VPN...every so often I notice a redirect to: http://www.blocked-website.com/blah/blah/blah

    Sorry, but www.foobar.com is blocked on this network.
    This site was categorized in: whatever

    Contact your network administrator

    ...anyone know why/how to prevent this from happening?

    EDIT: I might mention that it doesn't happen w/ fullyrouted servers.

    You could try these DNS servers:

    German Privacy Foundation e.V.

    I'd be careful with dnssec-trigger, comes up as a trojan on a few AV's. False positive?

    Stupid AV's freak out as soon as they see something that resembles a hash function or a stream/block cipher.

    AV's used to freak out with dnscrypt, too. I just switched the random number generator to a different function, and AV's became silent.

    Both dnscrypt and dnssec-trigger are opensource. You can recompile them and get exactly the same binaries.
