    Running Dnscrypt-proxy.exe 1.0.1 (no gui).

    Connection and cert retrieval is sporadic at best (works 1 out of 10 times). However, when I do get DNS with the proxy, it runs for 10 minutes then fails. The proxy displays an error msg:

    [WARNING] recvfrom(client): [Connection reset by peer [WSAECONNRESET ]]

    OpenDNS has closed the connection? I get no ICMP Dest Unreach msgs from the OpenDNS IP.

    Anyone else see this?

    No ICMP dest unreachable error either?

    What OS are you running? UDP support was ****ed up in Windows 2000 before Service Pack 2. But hope you are not running that, anyway.

    Cert retrieval doesn't use the dnscrypt protocol at all. It's a plain old boring regular DNS query. So, if even that works 1 out of 10 times, it looks like packets are having a hard time going to or coming back from OpenDNS servers.

    Try running a tool like WinMTr to see what happens when sending packets to 208.67.222.222.
