    I am soliciting feedback. I have been running OpenDNS via DNScrypt off my Tapi adapter. Gibson Research Spoofability test reports Anti-Spoofing safety to be excellent. DNSleaktest reports that I do not have a DNS server result zero. I only get that result when I am inside the vpn. I have run every test I can think of and cannot seem to find any dnsleaks. Does anyone know anything about:

    https://www.dnsleaktest.com/how-to-fix-a-dns-leak.php

    Is DNSfixsetup.exe worth anything? I really want to nail down potential dns leaks.

    Now the other thing. My real ISP is Comcast. I have read that Comcast is redirecting port 53 DNS transparently. See article below. Can anyone confirm or deny this. Discussion please.

    http://community.spiceworks.com/topic/255408-comcast-redirecting-port-53-dns-transparently

    Any suggestions on improving DNS security without running dnssec would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    I have found https://www.dnsleaktest.com to be unreliable in the past especially when running windows, also on a windows box the dnsfixsetup.exe has made the issue worse o_O how dunno, it's a simple .bat file that on inspection should do as advertised. I solved my problem by installing Linux.
    GRC's https://www.grc.com/dns/dns.htm gives consistent, accurate results, also IMO :)
